Xenoma’s e-skin smart apparel, in combination with wearHEALTH’s and DFKI’s software technology create one of the most advanced motion capture solutions demonstrated to date. The innovate concept was presented at the CES 2019 in Las Vegas, said a new release.

“Xenoma’s hardware represents a perfect integration of sensor technology into clothing, so that intelligent technologies can actually be worn like ordinary everyday clothing,” said Dr. Gabriele Bleser, head of wearHEALTH.

The system includes sensor calibration and magnetometer-free motion capturing algorithms from DFKI and wearHEALTH and combines it with Xenoma’s e-skin smart apparel which can be used in everyday life. This enables a variety of applications in rehabilitation, sport, work safety and wherever detailed and robust motion capturing is required.

“Unlike many others, wearHEALTH kept developing their tracking algorithms magnetometer-free in order to be applied in the actual use cases. I am convinced that this collaboration provides a great usability for industry users,” said Ichiro Amimori, Co-Founder & CEO of Xenoma. “Xenoma’s e-skin is developed to be used in a daily life. The technology of wearHEALTH and DFKI allows us to insightfully help athletes, persons under rehab and factory workers.”
