BUILT-IN SENSORS TO COLLECT MEDICAL DATA!
You may have embraced wearing a fitness watch to collect data about your resting heartrate, fitness and sleep habits, but the same technology can also be built into clothes.
Omsignal has created activewear, workwear and sleepwear that collects a raft of medical-grade data without wearers noticing. Its bras, t-shirts and shirts are made using smart stretchy fabric with built-in strategically placed ECG, respiration and physical activity sensors.
The data collected by these sensors is sent to a recording module in the clothing, which then sends it to the Cloud. It can be accessed, analysed and viewed using an app to help people work out ways of staying calmer under pressure at work, or how to sleep more soundly. The recording module can collect data for 50 hours without the need to be recharged and is splash and sweat-resistant.
