High Hopes for Wearable Technologies for Accurately Monitoring Heart Rate
In the field of rehabilitation, it is critical to monitor heart rate as an indication of the burden on patients and to gauge the effectiveness of rehabilitation. The clothing developed by Toray enables us to continuously monitor heart rate and activity levels, more easily than before. The heart-rate sensing ability of hitoeTM fabric supports broad applications for rehabilitation, such as teaching patients to stand and walk again. We expect that hitoeTM will help to improve the quality of rehabilitation as we further refine the safety and efficiency of our system.
