Cirque du Soleil performers wear Hexoskin smart shirts to record biometrics

October 20, 2014 - 

Hexoskin announced that 10 Cirque du Soleil performers are wearing its smart shirts to record their biometrics during the live Beatles Love show.

Though Cirque du Soleil performers around the world normally wear Hexoskin smart shirts during training routines, this marks the first time that they will be wearing the smart shirts for the Beatles live show.

Hexoskin said it will continue this trial for the next six weeks to analyze the artists’ performances and identify new ways on how these can be optimized.

The wearable tech solution connects an intelligent sports garment with integrated sensors that capture body metrics, including heart rate, breathing rate, power, and acceleration.

Hexoskin is designed for trainers and coaches of amateur and professional athletes and sports teams who are looking to evaluate and monitor performance results.

The Hexoskin intelligent garment provides trainers with an easy and natural way of regularly capturing precise data, recording more than 35,000 data points per minute to provide accurate body metrics.

Trainers can monitor and compare their athlete’s detailed body metrics either remotely or onsite using an iPhone or iPad or via a Web portal.
