Sensatex, a developer of integrated smart textile systems, announced the Beta launch of its SmartShirt System.
The Sensatex SmartShirt enables to remotely monitor a wearer's movement, heart rate, and respiration rate in real-time through a patented nanotechnology conductive fiber grid that is seamlessly knit into the material of the fully washable shirt.
The SmartShirt interfaces with wireless communication systems using ZigBee technology so that data can be transmitted to virtually any back-end system.Possible uses for the smart shirt include home health monitoring for the elderly, observing outpatients in post-operative and chronic illness situations, training support for athletes, remote monitoring for first responders, hazard materials workers, and soldiers in the field, and watching professional truck drivers' vital signs to alert them of fatigue.
Testing of the SmartShirt System is planned for later this year. Sensatex is also testing a one-lead EKG band and a SmartBra.
