Sensatex is a life science technology company focused on the development of Smart Textile Systems. It is focused on developing its Smart Textile platform in a manner that will allow utilization of the technology in multiple applications useful for the healthcare, life sciences, and government industry. The company was founded in 2000 with a goal not only to develop multiple means for collecting information from the body, but developing the systems to permit the capture, monitoring and interpretation of the information.

Sensatex's first product SmartShirt is a patented wearable Smart Textile unisex T-shirt designed to acquire physiological information and movement data from the human body. The System collects analog signals through conductive fiber sensors and passes them through a conductive fiber grid knitted in the T-Shirt. A textile connector passes the analog signals to a small personal controller held in a pocket on the shirt. The personal controller digitizes the signal and transmits the signal to a Bluetooth or Zigbee receiver connected to a base station where the information is collected, displayed and/or stored. Heart rate, respiration, and body temperature are all calibrated and relayed in real time for analysis.
