smartex

SMARTEX S.R.L. (SMARTEX)

Country: Italy

www.smartex.it/en/

SMARTEX s.r.l is a small limited liability company founded in 1999. Core activity is the implementation of bio sensing apparels (T­shirts, bands, vests, etc.) able to monitor vital signals, as electrocardiograms, heart rate, respiration signal and rate, index of activity as well as bio-potentials like EMG. Moreover systems based on piezoresistive textile sensors allow acquiring biomechanical signals for the recognition of gesture and posture. Wearable apparel will be used in OActive to house inertial platforms and create a LAN.
