Behind every advancement in this digital world, there is a new/improved technology that acts as a driving force. The healthcare industry is said to be one of the fastest-growing sectors in Europe, thanks to health awareness, access to insurance, and other factors. Said that medical technology has silently advanced healthcare in various aspects.
In this regard, Chronolife, an artificial intelligence company specializing in digital health, recently announced the commercial launch of Nexkin, a groundbreaking washable smart T-shirt that monitors six vital physiological parameters to enable prevention, risk reduction, and remote patient monitoring.
The company secured funding to support its industrial and commercial plan execution from three investors – iBionext, Adrea, and Celeste Management.
Approved in the EU and the US!
It’s worth mentioning that Nexkin has received C.E. (Conformité Européenne) mark, certifying it as meeting all safety and performance requirements for sale in the European Union. Chronolife also received Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval this summer, certifying that the Nexkin™ shirt’s Bluetooth connectivity meets all U.S. regulatory requirements.
Laurent Vandebrouck, CEO of Chronolife, said:
The Nexkin T-shirt makes accurate, unobtrusive, continuous health monitoring both affordable and convenient across a wide range of industries and functionalities, from pharmaceutical testing to senior care. By combining wearable electronics with advanced AI-powered analytics, we’re delivering biometric monitoring capabilities that will revolutionize the way researchers and healthcare professionals interact with patients.
What’s so cool about the Nexkin platform?
If you are not aware, the Nexkin platform uses cutting-edge wearable electronics to integrate ten biometric scanners into a comfortable, machine-washable T-shirt. It is capable of continuously tracking a user’s heart rate, abdominal, and thoracic breathing, body temperature, physical activity, and pulmonary impedance.
Notably, the data will be transmitted via Bluetooth to the user’s smartphone, where data from multiple sensors is integrated using Chronolife’s unique HOTS (Hierarchy Of event-based Time Surfaces) algorithm. Furthermore, it can be downloaded or transferred to secure servers for review by health professionals.
Real-time analytics and next-gen wearable sensors!
Chronolife’s Nexkin technology is the combination of AI-powered real-time analytics and next-generation wearable sensors that has the potential to revolutionize fields – aging-in-place senior care, chronic illness management, occupational health and safety, sports rehabilitation, military training, and performance management.
This commercial launch of Nexkin will allow healthcare organizations and professionals to continuously monitor patients’ physiological markers, detect abnormalities, and intervene promptly.
Bernard Gilly of iBionext said:
AI and wearable technologies are dramatically changing the healthcare and research sectors, and Chronolife is at the very forefront of that movement. This commercial launch is just the beginning: the potential applications for the Nexkin T-shirt are almost endless.
