@Hailey that's true, but really most clothes today don't withstand more than that. In that case, the fabric itself tends to pill and tear, though for these shirts I believe its really a matter of too much trauma on the sensors after 50 washes.

@Ariella, it's a good start, but i think the fabrics will have to become more robust if its really going to catch on. That's only  a year with a weekly washing which seems conservative for me.

"
Ariella, that I understood and it seems that in house also they have to be bedridden while wearing the shirt/jacket."

@Jacob not at all! That's the idea; it's designed for active people. The promotional video shows them walking and biking outside. Really, that is not just a matter of convenience but of much better recording and safety, as they can be transmitting signals for a whole day rather than just the snapshot read of a few minutes that one gets from being strapped to a machine at an appointed time.

@Hailey yes, these shirts are described as washable in the machine on a warm cycle for up to 50 washes.

"actually, the results are on par with hospital ECG systems. Having seen patients hooked up to such machines in hospitals over days, I can tell you that patients attached for long term monitoring on these things also have soemissues. I believe they, too, would benefit from a shirt like this over the traditional tabs put on with adhesive. In the hospital, they have to then carry the pouch that contains the trasnmitter  with them every time they get up from their beds, which is not exactly convenient.  "

Ariella, that I understood and it seems that in house also they have to be bedridden while wearing the shirt/jacket.

@ariella, I talked to one designer recently who was working on this type of technology and he brought up washability as well. I hadn't thought of it, but it really is critically important, as is the aesthetics of the design since it is fashion.
