In collaboration with universities and specialized companies, ComfTech® has developed HOWDY® SENIOR: a wearable monitoring solution designed for adults, without age limits, in a continuous, non-invasive and real-time way by detecting vital parameters such as heart and respiratory rate, position and movement.
The system consists of a HOWDY® SENIOR electronic unit (Class IIb medical device), an app (HOWDY App) for reading data, and a sensorised fabric top. The system can be integrated with a thermometer and a saturation meter, whose data are displayed on the HOWDY App.
For ComfTech® it is fundamental that the device does not affect a person’s lifestyle. HOWDY® SENIOR’s design always puts the user at the centre: it’s born from people’s needs and proposes itself as a safe, non-invasive and comfortable system that can be worn all day long in total freedom. That’s why HOWDY® SENIOR’s sensorised top is made of a special conductive yarn that guarantees absolute and long-lasting comfort: the fabric adheres like a second skin, leaving the wearer complete freedom of movement in all his/her daily activities and detecting the signal in a safe way. The textile sensors, all of which are patented, not only provide a high quality signal but are also hypoallergenic and comfortable, yet invisible.
