With multiple potential diagnostic applications, Nanowear has first developed a remote monitoring solution to keep heart failure patients out of the hospital. A nanotechnology-enabled garment, SimpleSense, allows for non-invasive, multi-parameter sensing and machine learning-based scoring of physiological signals important for identifying worsening heart failure before a patient has symptoms and in time for clinicians to intervene to prevent hospitalizations.

We’re now in the third generation of digital health, and entrepreneurs are armed with some knowledge about what prevented the adoption or sustainability of the first decade of technologies. But there is still a gap between consumer and medical products.
