Sensatex to launch SmartShirt field trials

May '07
Sensatex Inc announced that it would shortly begin field trials of its patented SmartShirt System. The SmartShirt System is a seamless shirt designed to monitor an individual's heart rate, respiration and movement wirelessly and remotely. The field tests are the final step before the product will be commercially available.

Based on patents licensed from Georgia Tech University and additional patents filed by Sensatex, the SmartShirt collects physiological signals from the wearer's body which are converted to digital signals using a small personal controller and sent wirelessly to a base station through either Bluetooth or ZigBee wireless technology.

“We are very excited about beginning field tests of the system in different environments testing different applications,” Robert G. Kalik, CEO of Sensatex, said. “Sensatex is seeking corporate partners to sponsor field tests to ensure a wide range of test applications and environments. We are presently in discussions with companies and governmental agencies in five countries to act as research sponsors for the field trials.”

Potential test applications include first responders, military personnel, people with sleep apnea, homebound elderly, post-operative patients, truckers, patients undergoing physical rehabilitation, patients in rural settings and more. The SmartShirt will be tested in a variety of environments including indoors, outdoors, and underwater, as well as in very dry and very humid settings. The data collected will enable Sensatex to finalize its first commercial product and position the company for the first possible FDA application using a smart textile system.
