OMsignal’s Biosensing Clothing

OMSignal, a Montreal based start-up, is developing ground breaking clothing technology, specifically a shirt worn under regular clothing, that allows for monitoring of heart rate, breathing, calories, activity and emotional state. The data obtained from sensors in the shirt that are pressed against the skin are sent to a computer or a mobile app where the user can view heart rate, calories burnt, exertion, stress and even mood. This novel technology can also alert a loved one about a potentially dangerous situation such as a heart attack. This smart–and washable–clothing technology is truly revolutionary and future medical applications for such clothing technology are endless.
