Toronto-based Myant has partnered with the PACE Cardiology Clinic, headquartered in Newmarket, Ontario, to bring a remote patient monitoring virtual clinic to Canadians living with chronic cardiovascular disease.

This is made possible through the use of Skiin Underwear biosensing garments that continuously capture the health data of patients, which can then be visualised using an app and practitioner web portal.

Myant has been a pioneer in what it calls ‘Textile Computing’ via flat knitting technology – its textiles allow humans to connect to themselves, others, and to AI, consolidating their textile and third-party sourced health data within the Myant Platform in order to address the need for continuous and holistic remote patient monitoring. Its textile interface is called Skiin, and its Underwear family of products have been licensed by Health Canada as a Class 2 medical device. PACE Cardiology is a world leader in cardiac care, research and diagnostics.

With 26 cardiologists on staff, its clinical team is committed to providing compassionate and individualised care to cardiac patients, while incorporating the very latest technologies and innovations from the comfort of the home. PACE offers expert care in electrophysiology, atherosclerotic heart disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, general cardiology, women’s heart health, cardiac diagnostics, cardiac genetics, cardiac rehab and more.
