Astroskin Smart Shirt Will Monitor Astronauts’ Vital Signs in Space #WearableWednesdays

via Wearable Technologies

Hexoskin, the world leader in biometric clothing for physical training, sleep tracking and general health monitoring, announced its new smart garment Astroskin, which is aimed at revolutionizing healthcare research on Earth and in Space.

The Astroskin system is based on the Bio-Monitor designed for the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to monitor the astronauts’ health in space on the International Space Station (ISS).

The CSA will have its Bio-Monitor available to all ISS participating countries to conduct space research for the next five years. It is scheduled to launch in space in November 2018 aboard SpaceX’s Dragon cargo vehicle from Florida.

The smart garments come in a wide variety of sizes for men and women. The garments, which can be machine-washed, include cutting edge blood pressure monitor, pulse oximetry, respiration, 3-lead ECG, skin temperature, and activity sensors for 48 hours of continuous real-time monitoring. The system also includes iOS apps for iPhones and iPads, data synchronization software, and a web dashboard.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
