Hexoskin[1] is an open data smart shirt for monitoring EKG, heart rate, heart rate variability, breathing rate, breathing volume, actigraphy and other activity measurements like step counting and cadence.[2] Hexoskin allows real-time[3] remote health monitoring on smart phones and tablets using Bluetooth.[4][5][6][7] The smart shirt was created to be used for personal self-experiments, and has also been used by health researchers to study physiology, elite and professional athletes to optimize their physical conditioning, and astronauts to train for space missions.[8]

Hexoskin embeds physiological sensors in smart textiles materials, and is a connected object in the sense of the Internet of Things concept.[9]
