GOLETA, CA--(Marketwired - May 06, 2016) - BIOPAC Systems, Inc., has released the BioNomadix BioShirt to expand its range of research quality BioNomadix wearable, wireless physiology measuring devices. The BioNomadix BioShirt utilizes the latest material technology and incorporates fabric electrodes to record ECG from the heart and a sensor for respiration data. The subject pulls the shirt on and attaches a BioNomadix transmitter to record both ECG and respiration for heart rate variability, respiratory sinus arrhythmia, and ECG and respiration analysis. The smart electrodes and fabric sensor replace adhesive electrodes and respiration belts to significantly improve subject comfort. The BioShirt expands BIOPAC's BioNomadix suite of products which empowers researchers to measure physiology anytime, anywhere, and on any subject.

"The BioNomadix BioShirt provides an easy-to-use solution for physiology monitoring," said Frazer J. Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC Systems, Inc. "When you pair the BioShirt with either our BioNomadix Logger or our wireless BioNomadix amplifiers and MP150 system and AcqKnowledge Software, you have a complete physiology monitoring system that eliminates problems associated with wearing electrodes, is comfortable for the subject, and provides the researcher with great data," Findlay said.

The BioShirt allows researchers to collect a wide range of synchronized signals, including: activity, heart, muscle, brain, electrodermal, respiration, cardiac output, gastric, angle of movement, heel and toe strike, eye tracking, location through GPS, and participant feedback via an audio journal. Now researchers can monitor study participants around-the-clock without having to worry about subject comfort. BioNomadix wearables are suitable for in-lab and remote monitoring applications. BIOPAC provides proven technology that comes with the credibility and validity of being cited in over 23,000 peer reviewed articles and is used by 97% of the top 100 academic institutions in the USA.

"The consumer fitness market for wearable devices is exceeding $3 billion in annual sales," Findlay said, "and new entrants join the crowded market every day, but researchers require integrated tools that allow them to collect a wide range of signals that just aren't available from consumer products. Researchers require data that goes beyond general fitness and activity, they want to record data such as brain activity, attention, eye gaze, and emotion in a synchronized and structured format that allows them to work with a diverse population of participants as they live life. This is where the BIOPAC BioNomadix range of products excels."

"The wearable market is evolving rapidly and we're excited to be supporting the research community with high-quality wearable devices that provide fully integrated and synchronized solutions," said Findlay. "The BioShirt is a fantastic addition to the BioNomadix wearable family of products and confirms our commitment to providing world-class solutions that inspire and enable discovery about life."
