FabriXense - Changing the wearable technology world!!!
FabriXense is a startup company introducing a novel approach for biomedical monitoring of a person incorporated into smart clothing. The clothing provides active and continuous measure of biomedical parameters such as heart beat rhythm, breathing, oximetry and blood pressure (all this was experimentally demonstrated in our lab). Our sensor is a fiber based and it is integrated into the closing while in order to perform the measurement no full contact is required between the skin of the person and the clothing. The sensor is suitable to all types of clothing both sportswear as well as regular wear, diapers, shoes and even vechiles. etc.
The operation principle is based on unique (and patented) methods for measuring reflection of light going through optical fiber. Special artifacts are inserted into the core of the fiber and cause to two things:
(1) interaction of the light with the wearer tissues as some of the light escapes from the fiber and then back reflected and coupled into the fiber again (while those back coupled photons can be detected)
(2) realization of in-fiber interferometer that can measure with high precision movements and deformations caused to the fiber. The fabricated fibers like sensor can be thinner than the fibers used for optics communication and can be as thin as only few tens of microns. We are in the prototype stage.
FabriXense leaders team based on the founders, Ronen Rozenshtein as the CEO and Prof. Zeev Zalevsky of Bar-Ilan University as the CTO.
We seek strategic partnership that will enable the company to complete productization and taking its first steps into the ‘real world’.
