Rogers Communications, a Canadian digital cable, high speed internet, and home/mobile phone service provider, recently announced it is forming an alliance with Exmovere Holdings Inc.
This U.S. based company is a biomedical engineering company focused on government and consumer applications for healthcare, security and mobility.
The mission of Exmovere Holdings is to develop systems and technologies that make machines more intuitive, help families take care of each other, and give hope to the disabled.
Together, these two companies are planning to launch a new service allowing parents to monitor a newborn’s temperature and movement via a remote computer, tablet or smartphone.
The technology will be comprised of specially engineered biosensors that are embedded in children’s clothing, such as pajamas. The sensors will be able to stream data over Rogers’ mobile network to a qualifying device. Additionally, they will be rechargeable and will be able to feed detailed heart rate, emotional state, and activity level information to the parents.
