HEXOSKIN PRESENTS
ASTROSKIN / BIO-MONTOR

«This system, which includes a smart shirt and dedicated tablet application, will help keep an eye on astronauts' health and enable new science by continuously measuring physiological data. [...] The system is designed to easily send information to the ground, where scientists can monitor the astronauts' health around the clock as they orbit the planet». (Canadian Space Agency. 2018)

Since 2006, Hexoskin’s mission is to develop sensors and health data infrastructure to generate clinical grade real-world evidence. The Astroskin demonstrates once again Hexoskin’s leadership in providing the industry leading sensors, software, and AI to push further our understanding of human physiology on earth and in space.

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:

Fierce Pharma: Pharma has a real-world problem, and it's the lag in its sensor adoption

Adoption of mobile and connected health tech in clinical trials is a real-world challenge for pharmaceutical companies. Our CEO Pierre-Alexandre Fournier has shared his thoughts recently about the adoption of mobile and connected health tech with Fierce Pharma.

"The industry needs to get with it now or pay for it later—literally. The reason? Sensor tech will be adopted faster at a large scale in healthcare than in pharma trials, and that means “the drugs you are developing today are going to be seen with tools that you are not using in your trials right now.”  That could cost drugmakers billions of dollars if they launch products only to find that monitoring tech turns up real-world outcomes that don’t meet payers’ standards."
