Hexoskin and Halo Health are announcing today a collaboration to solve key challenges in running clinical trials. Combining Hexoskin and Halo Health's technology will offer greater operational efficiency for virtual clinical trials and home monitoring, and offer tools to increase patient engagement.
These new tools will reduce the cost of collecting vital signs data for clinical trials, and will allow patients to participate in medical research from the comfort of their home.
Hexoskin smart garments and its Connected Health Platform are compatible with Halo Health solutions. The two companies will mutually promote their offering to pharmaceutical sponsors to support clinical development.
