Hexoskin, a non-invasive system, used to monitor sleep and save costs

As seen in the AARP document, The Longevity Economy – How People Over 50 are Driving Economic and Social Value in the U.S., ‘’early experiments also indicate that Hexoskin may facilitate remote monitoring/telehealth—in uses ranging from ambient assisted living (AAL) to sleep health (Banejee, T. et al., 2015) (…) This reduces both public and individual healthcare costs, and is minimally intrusive for patients.’’

 



Hexoskin is the only clinically validated system that continuously 
records ECG with respiratory lung functions and daily/sleep activities. It is used more and more to assess sleep quality at home and in clinical studies. In fact, all the data recorded with Hexoskin are important to consider when it comes to wellness and longevity.

Sleep disorders can have a dramatic impact on a person's health. According to the American College of Cardiology, obstructive sleep apnea affects more than 12 millions American adults which most of the time aren't diagnosed. The relationship between sleep disorders and cardiovascular diseases is well documented.

Hexoskin presents its research at SLEEP 2017 in Boston (June 3-7)

Hexoskin is going to attend the SLEEP 2017 conference next week June 3-7 in Boston. Dr. Roger Godbout, professor at the University of Montreal and researcher at Hospital Rivières-des-Prairies, is going to present the results of a sleep monitoring clinical trial we've done with his research lab.

Hexoskin has been involved in clinical research and sleep analysis algorithm development since 2012. Researchers and professionals love how easy it is to access physiological data with Hexoskin.

We will be presenting at the session “O01: Circadian Rhythms, Activity, and Sleep Assessment” on Sunday, June 4th, 2017 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM in collaboration with Dr. Roger Godbout. We are scheduled to present from 2:45 PM - 3:00 PM.

 

Hexoskin smart shirts measure the quantity and quality of your sleep and are used for long-term sleep evaluation at home. Hexoskin is not a medical device. The monitoring system is used for clinical research and performance training. Hexoskin smart shirts are compatible with Android and iOS devices.
