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.

It's not too late to register for this Hexoskin Live Webinar on Artificial Intelligence, Cardiovascular & Respiratory Health Research with Hexoskin, that will cover the latest fields of applications & research studies. Our guest speaker, Thomas Beltrame, PhD, will discuss his work with his fellow research team at University of Waterloo to evaluate cardiovascular & respiratory health with Hexoskin and machine learning.
We will also present how the Hexoskin and Astroskin end-to-end platforms can support research and professional organizations for their Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence projects. Don't miss your chance to register!

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.

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.
