Footfalls & Heartbeats
Footfalls & Heartbeats is a New Zealand-based company founded by award winning chemist Simon McMaster who brings many years’ experience researching intelligent textiles. It is positioned to become a leader in the provision of smart textiles for a diverse range of applications in a global market that is increasingly demanding intelligent fabrics.
The company’s technology can be exclusively customised to meet the exact needs of its commercial partners in multiple healthcare areas and athletic and performance disciplines. This includes advanced wound care, compression garment systems, infant monitoring, athlete monitoring and remote monitoring of health and physiological symptoms for those in high risk environments, such as first responders and defence personnel.
Footfalls & Heartbeats technology also has the potential to measure mechanical stress in composite structures to allow real time structural composite monitoring for satellites, aircraft wings, wind turbine blades, yacht hulls and foils and high performance car chassis. The technology currently measures tensile and compressive forces and temperature.
Additional functionality being explored is the ability to track movement, bio-electrical outputs such as heart rate, active and passive skeletal muscle signals, as well as blood oxygen saturation, all of which will enable new applications. Footfalls & Heartbeats technology provides new opportunities for remote intervention to support individual monitoring with the potential to significantly reduce escalating healthcare costs for ageing populations and those with chronic illness and disease.
Footfalls & Heartbeats technology can create uniquely durable, safe and comfortable fabrics that are comfortable and natural to wear, making them ideal for people with health conditions. Information from Footfalls & Heartbeats sensing textiles has the potential to deliver a wealth of data to improve health and other outcomes.
The company is managed by Brent Ogilvie, who has extensive experience in early stage venture development, international business development and corporate partnering. This capability is supported by a group of high quality directors and active investors including Sparkbox Chairman Andrew Duff, entrepreneur Jeremy Collins, expat New Zealander David Bell who is Marketing Professor at Wharton Business School, and David Henry, its Chairman and former CFO of Fisher & Paykel.
