Columbia University Research Measures Impact of Air Pollution on Cyclists in NYC

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.
