Smart knitted textiles for quantified self and patient monitoring

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

As health care becomes more personalized, diagnosis and monitoring needs to follow suit: New Zealand-based Footfalls & Heartbeats Ltd. is using smart knitted textiles with electrically conductive yarn to make clothes where the knitting itself forms a sensor. The start-up’s first product, scheduled to launch in January 2014, is a compression “smart sock” for use in the treatment of chronic venous leg ulcers.
