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."

Hexoskin will be at HIMSS18 in Las Vegas next week! Come by our Booth #8700-47 to get insights about the Hexoskin Connected Health Platform, wearable health sensors & AI solutions.
We have designed a system to minimize user setup time and to maximize vital signs monitoring over long periods in a non-obstructive way with sensors embedded in a Smart Shirt. Data are synced to local and remote servers for health data management and analysis. Hexoskin offers a non-invasive solution for continuous monitoring in cardiology, respiratory, sleep, CNS, activity, stress and mental illness.
Contact us to book a meeting with our dedicated team during the show or to schedule a phone call regarding your future & ongoing projects.
Hexoskin is the world leader in smart clothing and body sensing technologies. Hundreds of researchers are already using Hexoskin for clinical research and real-time monitoring. The company has announced last year it will equip the International Space Station (ISS) with a bio-monitoring system for astronauts in collaboration with NASA and the Canadian Space Agency.
This year, Hexoskin is going to attend 2018 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition to discuss its latest advancements.
Visit us at Booth #8700-47 at the Venetian Palazzo-Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas from March 5-9.

At Hexoskin, we all have the desire to innovate in the realm of healthcare.
We create evolutive and interoperable solutions that help healthcare providers manage groups of people simultaneously and provide better healthcare.
Hexoskin makes the only product in the world designed to provide real-world, clinical data for cardiac, respiratory, daily and sleep activity continuously and in the long term.
The Hexoskin open platform (API) records health data and makes it accessible and useful to improve patient engagement and experience as well as providing a global insight on health conditions for care and research purposes.
Founded in 2006, Hexoskin has designed a system to minimize user setup time and to maximize vital signs monitoring over long periods in a non-obstructive way with sensors embedded in a Smart Shirt. Data are synced to local and remote servers for health data management and analysis. Hexoskin offers a non-invasive solution for longitudinal studies in cardiology, respiratory, sleep, CNS, activity, stress and mental illness.
Among other used cases, Hexoskin enables to acquire physiological data after a fall, which helps caregivers to study the fallen person's health condition in real time.
Context Aware Adaptable Approach for Fall Detection bases on Smart Textile

Hexoskin was founded in 2006 to solve healthcare challenges related to population aging. Since then, our team has contributed to science & society by creating analysis and prediction algorithms, and our platform has been used to generate high-resolution data for clinical research, space medicine, and elite athletes.
Hexoskin's vision, from its inception, was to create Artificial Intelligence models (AI) and make health data more accessible and useful. Better data and intelligence facilitate prevention, prediction, and management of chronic conditions to reduce hospitalization rates and provide better patient outcomes for a given budget. It helps patients and providers better communicate.
However, healthcare AI needs relevant and accurate data to learn from. This means you need a digital infrastructure that measures health where and when it matters, and makes data accessible for analysis. This is why we've designed the Hexoskin Smart Garment platform: to collect user's cardiac, respiratory, and physical activity information. We've built convenient tools to get good data from active and chronic patients. We believe good design makes it easier for users to provide the data AI needs to be effective.
Artificial intelligence combined with the data collected by Hexoskin Smart Garments make it possible to predict a variety of conditions and anticipate them with more efficiency. We'll be presenting some of our work in Houston next week, you can register for the event here.
Speakers from Hexoskin, Rice University and Texas Children's Hospital will be in Houston February 21st, 2018 to talk about AI, Machine Learning and Healthcare. Register today here.
