Myant, Canadian leader in textile computing, has secured Health Canada clearance for its biosensing Skiin underwear. The Class II medical device clearance allows garment wearers to reliably monitor their ECG data. Additionally, wearers can track other metrics, including heart rate, HRV, core body temperature, with more to come such as sleep and location.

Available in a number of comfortable and accessible form factors, Skiin underwear family of products, (which is currently also pending FDA clearance), will revolutionise Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM) through passive, continuous connection and data collection. Myant believes Skiin will support patients, their loved ones, and their practitioners in the shift towards more personalised care, especially in vulnerable communities like the aging population, Myant said in a press release.

“Cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death in the elderly population in North America. With cognitive decline attributed to loneliness on the rise. Though Myant’s vision is vast, we have adopted a laser focus on solving this looming challenge,” Tony Chahine, Myant and Skiin CEO said in a statement.

“Today’s healthcare system relies on events and episodic data, patient self-reporting, and disjointed support from a patient’s care circle. We believe that without holistic and continuously connected care, our marginalised and vulnerable communities like our aging population will continue to be underserved and at risk of lower efficacy in medication and rehabilitation program adherence,” Chahine said.

“I believe that Skiin will help patients overcome existing deterrents and barriers to adequate healthcare, helping serve our most marginalised populations by connecting them to care, to their family, friends, care providers, and practitioners,” Myant’s EVP, Ilaria Varoli said.
