“OM shirts monitor your activity, physiological stress and fitness levels, giving you total control over your fitness and everyday performance,” the team says. “Each of the four shirts include health sensors embedded into the fabric that measure your biometric data in real-time and relay this information to your personal dashboard on the Omsignal app.

The Vision of the OM:  bring technology into life by developing products and applications to help people live a fitter, healthier and happier life.

Definitely a worthy business model and vision.  Being able to track your health simply by the clothes you wear is the future of health.  Eventually, there may be technology so sophisticated that it will give you warning signs of an oncoming heart attack hours or even days and weeks before you could have one.  We may be getting ahead of ourselves here but the fact of the matter is that it seems that the industry of smart wear for health and fitness is going in that direction.  OM Signal has a handle on that notion and has been making strides in its concepts and develop for the absolute benefit of human lives and not just in sports either.
