Astroskin featured in Limitless With Chris Hemsworth on Disney+

What if you could combat aging and discover the full potential of the human body? Global movie star Chris Hemsworth (“Extraction,” “Thor,” “The Avengers”) explores this revolutionary idea in the new National Geographic original series “Limitless with Chris Hemsworth” created by Darren Aronofsky and hailing from his production company Protozoa and Jane Root’s Nutopia.

New scientific research is shattering conventional wisdom about the human body and offering fascinating insights into how we can all unlock our body’s superpowers to fight illness, perform better and even reverse the aging process. This science is put to the test by Hemsworth, who, despite being in peak superhero condition, is on a personal mission to learn how to extend our health, strength and intellect further into our later years.

Undergoing a series of epic trials and extraorinary challenges in order to understand the limits of the human body, he’ll learn firsthand how we can live better for longer by discovering ways to regenerate damage, maximize strength, build resilience, supercharge memory, and confront mortality. 

The Astroskin Vital Signs Monitoring Platform, an advanced smart clothing, is used in the first episode of the series titled Stress-Proof.

Ever since his teenage years, stress has been part of Chris’ life, and he wants to learn how to deal with it better. In this episode of the series, Chris Hemsworth will learn powerful physical and psychological techniques that can be used to control the stress in our lives and combat the risk it poses to long-term health.

Hexoskin is thrilled to attend once again the upcoming BIODigital International Convention 2020, and connect with other members of the life science community. This year the meetings will transition to a virtual event format in which Hexoskin will take part. Pierre-Alexandre Fournier, co-founder, and CEO of Hexoskin will speak on the panel:

Can AI Prevent Epidemics? (Available on demand).

The panel is hosted by Annastasiah Mudiwa Mhaka, PhD, Co-founder and Convenor of the Alliance for Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare (AAIH) Convenor, former President; Founder; Mawambo Lifesciences. Our CEO will be joined in this panel by leaders in government, technology, venture capital, and health care to discuss the potential for using AI to protect us from the next pandemic or superbug. The world is more vulnerable than ever to outbreaks and remains ill-prepared to predict, prevent, detect, and respond to a significant pandemic. The panel will cover how advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) tools and algorithms can improve the prediction of infectious disease outbreaks and prevent them from causing devastating pandemics. The panel participants will also discuss the kind of innovative public-private partnerships that can be used to develop and test new AI tools for epidemic prevention. 

Hexoskin will also demonstrate how the industry can leverage Hexoskin sensors, clinical solutions, and AI to fulfill the increasing demand for real-world evidence.
