The partnership aims to validate the efficacy of solutions built on the Myant Platform which use textile garments to assess conditions and deliver therapy to the patient’s body. This new mode of connecting patients to care solves the fundamental challenges of distribution, adoption and diagnosis that have limited the proliferation of telehealth in the past…
Myant Inc., world leaders in textile computing, have announced a partnership with Dr. Natalie Archer DDS, recognized Canadian dental expert, to collaboratively develop a new line of personal protective equipment designed to address the tremendous risks that dental professionals face as they re-open their practices to serve their communities in need.
By redirecting its textile innovation expertise and reconfiguring its 80,000 sq ft manufacturing facility, the textile innovators at Myant are ready to produce up to 340,000 masks per month, providing relief for mask shortages in communities across the city, the province, and the country.
Our attitudes and behaviors relating to hygiene are rapidly evolving as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. What textile innovations for protective equipment are Myant producing to help us stay safe in this new world?
We at Myant believe that it is part of our responsibility to be collaborating with other enterprises, working together to address the immediate and long-term impact of COVID-19 on society. This is an open invitation to collaborate in our joint proposal to federal and provincial governments to deploy a connected care solution to remotely assess COVID-19 cases and provide telemedicine services to those in isolation.
The garments in this line (including a base layer top, leggings, socks, a balaclava, and gloves) are wire-free, embedded with textile sensors that can measure body temperature and react by actively delivering heat through the textile to maximize comfort and enhance productivity. Active thermal workwear is one of the first applications of Myant’s larger vision to transform the future of “work” via textiles that can sense and react to the human body.
By employing textiles that can sense and react to the human body and connecting patients to loved ones, healthcare practitioners, and artificial intelligence, Myant aims to close the gap in the feedback loop that has previously limited existing models of telemedicine and usher in a new era where distance is no longer a barrier to effective care.
Myant Inc., pioneers in Textile Computing™, will be exhibiting at CES 2020 in Las Vegas and showcasing a system of connected performance apparel (including a pair of connected cycling shorts) designed to augment fitness experiences, connecting athletes to their bodies, their training partners and coaches.
Myant Inc., pioneers in Textile Computing™, will be exhibiting at CES 2020 (January 7-10, 2020 in Las Vegas) with many demonstrations including a full-body interface implemented through textile that creates new ways to holistically understand and communicate with the human body.
An office environment connected to the Myant Platform will be aware of the worker’s current physical and psychological state, anticipate their needs, and react to create personalized experiences that optimize individual performance, resulting in enterprise-wide enhancement of productivity and workforce health and well-being.
