Research organizations publish more than ever with Hexoskin data! Hexoskin Scientific Community has surpassed a significant milestone by publishing over 200 scientific publications.
Hexoskin is the most popular smart clothing platform for health monitoring in the world, and its users have published more papers with Hexoskin and Astroskin devices than with all the competition combined.
The long list of papers covers cardiovascular health, respiratory monitoring, stress, sleep, space medicine, and many more subjects.
We've always believed transparency and collaboration are fundamental values necessary to the progress of science. This is why from the beginning we provided to our users tools to conduct investigations, collect data from research participants, and an open API to access every data point collected and automate data processing tasks. From these tools has emerged a dynamic research community pushing our understanding of human physiology.
50 countries and is used by top universities, research institutes, hospitals, government, defense, police, and first responders organizations in addition to companies in many industries.
Our Hexoskin + Research program aims to support student and academic researchers every step of the way. Hexoskin also supports professionals and innovative companies with our program Hexoskin + Professionals.
In this episode of the Bleeding Edge of Digital Health, host Mike Moore speaks with entrepreneur, scientist, and co-founder of Hexoskin, Pierre-Alexander Fournier.
Mike and Pierre talk about how his latest tech garment is being utilized in health care today, how it is benefiting not just the patient but the physician as well, and more importantly, the future products and garments in Hexoskin’s pipeline that will pave the way for further innovation and change the way we take care of our health, and the health of the ones we care about. Be sure to listen to the entire session.
“So, we're working on different garments. We do have another product that has more sensors called the Astroskin that is being used in research, and that's the product that is being used in the space station right now for different research projects in microgravity. The Astroskin is the model Chris Hemsworth is wearing in Limitless.”
“Research groups we're working with have built the largest database of vital signs for many specific health conditions. So, there are a lot of things that will come out of it. And as I said earlier, we're not just building a product for single use. Eventually, we're going to add blocks to that platform so that it can be used for several types of disease, and it's going to become a great bundle for people with comorbidities.”
Hexoskin's co-founder and CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier has been invited to talk about long-term vital signs monitoring at the Biosensors for Medical Wearables Conference in Boston on October 25th.
Vital signs sensors traditionally used for cardiac and respiratory monitoring involve adhesives or tape to keep the sensors in place on the skin. Experience has shown there's a tradeoff between monitoring duration (1 to 14 days), and adhesive agressiveness, which can lead to skin rashes or wounds.
There's now a safer and more convenient way for patients to record long-term vital signs data needed for diagnosis or to guide care or rehabilitation: smart textiles. Hexoskin users have successfully demonstrated the advantages of using a form factor that patients like. Researchers have documented it in over 160 scientific papers.
In his talk, Fournier will describe medical applications of smart textile sensors for patients with cardiac and respiratory diseases, as well as opportunities in research in mental health and rare diseases. He will also share unique insights into Hexoskin's experience in space medicine research aboard the International Space Station.

We thank all our attendees and Guests Speakers who participated in our Live Webinar on Continuous & Remote Respiratory Monitoring with Hexoskin - In the Era of Chronic Illness, Pandemics & Limited Health Resources, on August 25th, 2020! If you were not able to attend live, and wish to watch it, you can now access the Webinar's recording:
Over 250 guests registered for this panel with our guest speakers Dr. Dennis Jensen (McGill University), and Denise Mannée (Radboud University Medical Center). In this session we discussed the benefits and considerations of digital technologies for Healthcare Providers, Researchers and Patients, and provide real-world evidence of Hexoskin's remote respiratory monitoring capabilities.
Today, we start celebrating Pulmonary Rehabilitation Week. At Hexoskin, we think that Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is vital and we are happy to celebrate all the efforts of the professionals and also the people who are following a PR. Pulmonary Rehabilitation programs have demonstrated health benefits and can positively improve the quality of life of people living with lung diseases.
If you have moderate to very severe Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you're probably eligible for pulmonary rehab. Ask your physician if there's a program near you.
For healthcare professionals, did you know that PR referrals & access are still very limited? According to a recent study, only 3% of Medicare beneficiaries with COPD are currently enrolled (Garvey et al. 2019). You can do your part by educating your peers, colleagues, and administrators about the benefits of PR.

Commuting by bike is a great way to include physical activity in our day-to-day living. However the impact of air pollution on cyclists is not something that is well understood.
Columbia University researchers Steven Chillrud, Darby Jack, and their colleagues from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory have been using Hexoskin smart shirts and other sensors to collect data on pollution exposure in a real-world settings. This allows them to map pollution exposure around New York city. These maps can be used by cyclists and policy makers to better plan bike paths and bike lanes.
This project will have an important impact on urban design and mobility. Vice News covered their research project this week in this video:
The Hexoskin Connected Health Platform is used by researchers in many domains all around the world. Remote & Continuous Respiratory Monitoring is a field of interest that is gaining momentum, but few non-invasive solutions exist to monitor the lung function of subjects and patients.
We invite you to our second webinar that will cover our latest results and applications in respiratory research. We will also present how Hexoskin can monitor COPD patients by using its very unique physiological data.
Webinar: Remote & Continuous Respiratory Monitoring with Hexoskin
30 May 2018, at 12:00 PM (EST) - via the Zoom Video Conferencing software
Speaker: Thu Ngan Trinh, PhD, Clinical Application Specialist at Hexoskin
Guest Speaker: Ruud van Leuteren, MSc, PhD Candidate in Neonatology at the Academic Medical Centre in Amsterdam.
If you are unable to attend, we still invite you to register and we will send you the recorded webinar by email afterward.
We look forward to your presence at this new webinar!
Founded in 2006, Hexoskin has designed a system to minimize user setup time and to maximize vital signs monitoring over long periods in a non-obstructive way with sensors embedded in a Smart Shirt. Data are synced to local and remote servers for health data management and analysis. Hexoskin offers a non-invasive solution for longitudinal studies in cardiology, respiratory, sleep, CNS, activity, stress and mental illness.
