Motorola Invests in Zephyr for Remote Physiological Monitoring

Motorola has made a strategic investment in Zephyr Technology Corporation, which specializes in remote physiological monitoring. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Zephyr said its physiological and biomechanical monitoring solutions are based on the company's patent-pending Smart Fabric technology, which combines fabric-based sensors with algorithms and electronics. These monitoring solutions can be used in a diverse range of areas including sports, defense, first responder and healthcare. Its professional-grade BioHarness system monitors conditions such heat state, dehydration or injury by measuring vital signs including heart rate, breathing rate, skin temperature, posture and activity. Using the subject's voice radio (or internal radio for short distances), the BioHarness communicates to monitoring software designed to give real-time alerts and post-event analysis.
