Smart fabric-based biotelemetry measurement device

The BioHarness system uses patented smart-fabric technology in a diagnostic tool that measures heart rate and respiratory performance. Because the harness is textile based, it provides increased performance and comfort over traditional equipment. The device is small enough that it does not encumber or change the behavior of the monitored subject, and it can either log a week’s worth of activity or provide real-time analysis over its built-in radio link.

The BioHarness software offers an array of real-time and trend-analysis tools. These options allow a coach or medical professional to monitor a subject’s performance remotely between sessions. The software tools wirelessly connect to the harness and provide real time graphical display, wireless transmission to 100 m, and detailed records for comparisons and further analysis.
