The modwells system allows you to combine biometric data in any combination that suites you and ultimately allows you to look at different combinations of data in a way that makes sense to your situations and needs.

The modwells system consists of input/output objects called “mods” that are designed to be carried or worn. As inputs, they collect and assess environmental and biometric data. As outputs, they alert you when the data is off track from your goals, display the status of the collected data, and share collected data to your network. They can be used individually or combined with other mods. It’s up to you how you use them.

The data collected by the mod is sent via a wireless connection to the cloud and to selected people in your support group including friends and even doctors. It provides direct access to health data and presents it in a consumable way on any device such as a phone or tablet.

The posture garment accessory consists of a washable stretch sensing eTextile and a snap connection that allows you to easily attach a “move” mod. When attached, the mod is used to power your garment and collect the data. The garment’s muti-directional sensing measures side/side, forward/back, and twisting movement. The mod assesses the data and provides haptic feedback that alerts you when your posture does not match your goal

The mods provide alerts and feedback in context to help you make the right decisions. A mobile application provides in depth information about your data, related health information and suggestions on how to improve.
