BodyGraph’s goal is to turn data taken from body signals into concrete, personalized advice.
BodyGraph specializes in smart wearables – you will know these from, for example, watches that keep track of your workout performances. However, BodyGraph takes this one step further. You will not only receive more data through smart sensors, but you will also receive an interpretation of this data. This way, you will get personal advice about your health and performance. Currently, work is being done on a shirt that is made from smart textiles, which has sensors that can give you real-time feedback about your health and performance. The smart shirt measures your breathing, heartbeat, physical activity, body temperature and dehydration. The goal is to turn the data into concrete advice tailored to you personally.
Taking smart wearables to the next level: taking your performance to the next level.

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.
BodyGraph wants to change this by using smart textiles and deep learning algorithms. With these, more data is collected, and the findings that are collected are processed in two different ways. There is of course the direct way, which you are used to from current smart wearables: hard numbers. However, BodyGraph adds another layer to this and elevates smart wearables to a higher level: giving you useful advice that is tailored to your personal situation.
Deep learning algorithms
For this purpose, all product user data is sent anonymously to a purposely designed cloud service. There, connections are made between the data, which will lead to new personalized insights for users. This way, a smart wearable, such as the smart shirt, learns from the user. This will result in increasingly more accurate and more personal advice.
Besides interpreting data and translating it into advice that is useful for the user, BodyGraph also aims to make the readings more accurate. Current smart wearables only measure one or two signals, like your heartbeat and movements, and they usually obtain this data from your pulse. This method can be improved.
The smartshirt has biometric sensors woven into the fabric, measuring 6 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!
