VivoMetrics' LifeShirt(R) Selected by Concordia University to Provide Patient Data for Healthy Heart Research Project
Date:11/24/2008

VENTURA, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- VivoMetrics, Inc., developer of LifeShirt(R), a continuous, integrated and wearable remote patient monitoring (RPM) system, announced today that the company's proprietary LifeShirt(R) system is being used by Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) to learn more about lifestyle factors that may put children at risk for developing cardiovascular diseases as they grow older.

The study is being funded by a five-year grant from the Canadian Institute of Health Research.

Almost 81 million adults (one in three) in the United States have one or more types of cardiovascular diseases. Results of the large histological Pathobiological Determinants of Atherosclerosis in Youth (PDAY) study showed that the vascular injury that will lead to cardiovascular disease accumulates from adolescence, making primary prevention efforts necessary from childhood(1).

"LifeShirt provides a novel means of gaining critical insights into steps we can take in childhood to fight a disease that accounts for the deaths of more Canadians and Americans than any other disease," said lead researcher Jennifer McGrath, Ph.D., M.P.H., assistant professor and director of the Pediatric Public Health Psychology Lab at Concordia University.
