Hexoskin is very proud to be part of this study on sleep and young athletes with FC Barcelona, a world leader in the development of young athletes, and Allianz, one of the world's largest insurers.
Hexoskin has been involved in sleep research since 2012. We share the views of FC Barcelona that we need to do more research on sleep and young athletes to optimize their health and their gameplay. There's more than one way to monitor sleep with Hexoskin smart shirts, and this study allows us to advance of our knowledge of sleep in teenage athletes.
"The information gathered will be processed by doctors at the Adsalutem Institute, and FC Barcelona will provide data on the performance of the analysed athletes to be cross-referenced with those obtained on the quality of their sleep. A study will be shared detailing the conclusions obtained. The Adsalutem Institute has the academic support of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) within the framework of the 'Center for Studies of Sleep Medicine', in which both entities collaborate in the scientific and teaching fields."
Founded in 2006 in Montreal, Carré Technologies Inc. (Hexoskin) is involved in the development of non-invasive sensors, software & applications, data science & AI services. Hexoskin’s mission is to record and organize personal health information and make it accessible and useful.
