Pat Salber (@docweighsin) interviewed Davide Vigano, CEO of Sensoria, a digital health company that turns your garments into personal computers, at the 2015 Health 2.0. They make smart socks, smart bras and a smart T-shirt (you can learn more here: http://bit.ly/1ZVvhD3).
We also talked about Sensoria’s new product, a Moore Balance Brace (MBB) with Sensoria’s textile sensors embedded in the plantar areas. It is used with their electronic anklet (an accelerometer) that can be clipped onto the device. Davide says MBB has been clinically proven to reduce the risk of falling in elderly patients. By adding the sensors and the accelerometer, activity levels, activity types and gait parameters can be tracked. This is useful for stroke rehab, or following patients with MS, or Parkinsons Disease.
