Can you help to test the latest developments in wearable technology?

HOW CAN I HELP?

By wearing a Smartlife garment and carrying out a short test on a treadmill under guidance from a qualified physiologist.  The testing session would be carried out at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance and would last no longer than 1 hour (excluding travel time).  Travel expenses will be reimbursed. 

 

WHAT IS SMARTLIFE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Smartlife is a Manchester-based R&D company specializing in the development of textile sensors, electronics and softwarethat are capable of detecting and processing biophysical signals from the body. 

By discreetly integrating these sensors into clothing, Smartlife has created comfortable smart garments (e.g. chest straps, compression t-shirts, and sports bras) that can give users accurate information about their heart ratebreathing pattern,energy expenditure, and more. 

For more information please visit smartlifeinc.com.

 

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

  • Medical screening questionnaire
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, and BMI medical assessment
  • CV test: incremental treadmill protocol, typically involving 7-9 stages, each of 3 mins duration, until exhaustion.
  • Physiological data collected from 12 lead ECG + Smartlife garment
  • De-brief and expense claim form

You must be over 18 to take part.  Please arrive prepared with your own clothing suitable for exercise: comfortable shorts/pants/leggings, running trainers, and a sports bra (if applicable).   Please note you will not be able to wear your own training top (e.g. vest or t-shirt) over the ECG and Smartlife sensor for the duration of the test.

All data collected during the session will be treated as strictly confidential and used only for the purposes of validating and improving Smartlife’s heart rate and breathing algorithms.
