The Canadian wearable technology company Carré Technologies, better known as Hexoskin, recently announced a partnership with the Canadian Space Agency


Hexoskin and the CSA reached a $2.4 million agreement that will see astronaut David Saint-Jacques wear their Astroskin smart monitoring shirt aboard the International Space Station. The technology will be used to remotely track vitals and overall health in real time during his upcoming six-month stay on the ISS, in 2018.

Astroskin is a tight fighting shirt that tracks and collects data. The shirt monitors heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, skin temperature, sleep quality, heart rate variation and activity level. The company began testing their monitoring shirt more than two years ago, when a group of eight men and women wore Astroskins during a 45-day expedition in Antarctica.
