BodyGraph’s goal is to turn data taken from body signals into concrete, personalized advice.
By now a common sight, the smartphone – can you image life without it, or with a mobile that can only handle calls and texts? – and the smartwatch, also increasingly popular. The smartshirt is the latest addition in the area of ‘smart wearables’ – the international name for smart, wearable devices providing measurement data. And it is in this area that BodyGraph will make a difference. BodyGraph will add an extra layer by translating this data into real time personal health advice. After all, figures don’t count for much without context.
Health is hot. More and more often, people want insights into their health. The current generation of smart wearables makes this possible, and provides the user with a lot of data. This data still needs to be interpreted, however. Because: what these smart wearables cannot do yet, is give you real-time feedback that is precisely tailored to your body and your situation.
How does it work?
The smartshirt has biometric sensors woven into the fabric, measuring 5 key bodily functions. This goes way further than simply monitoring your heart rate! Naturally, the shirt also features a GPS tracker, giving you up-to-date information about your current location. It actually becomes ‘smart’ when algorithms and Artificial Intelligence are added to give you useful feedback about your performance. Feedback that helps you stay healthy. Gives you tips about what to do. Or warns you when it is time to slow down. See it as your personal coach!
