HOWDY® SENIOR

HOWDY® SENIOR

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.

All the data collected are sent wirelessly in real time to devices such as smartphones or tablets, and through the HOWDY App, a dedicated and intuitive app, they can be read by the person concerned. In addition to the patient, thanks to a telemedicine service, the data can also be sent to authorised medical personnel, who can thus have an overall picture of the patient and constantly monitor the evolution of his or her state of health. As well as being high-tech, the sensorised fabrics are washable and sustainable. It is possible to detach the electronic component from the garment, thus allowing total recycling of the garment and partial recycling of the device, with consistent and differentiated disposal of non-recyclable elements.

Wearing a simple garment that integrates ComfTech® textile technology, you can monitor yourself and share your parameters as needed, at home and wherever you want. HOWDY® SENIOR was created to be integrated into the user’s everyday life as a flexible, adaptable and non-invasive support.
