Sensoria receives pair of prestigious awards

Redmond’s Sensoria Fitness, a world leader in artificial intelligence and smart garment technology, announced that after being selected as a winner for the Editor’s Pick Awards by Runner’s World at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas, it has now been named “Best Start-Up Company” by Future Textile Awards.

This award program, created by the World Textile Information Network (WTiN), recognizes success in material innovation. The program also recognized Sensoria as a finalist in the “Best Product: Sports Textiles” and “Ground Breaking Partnership” categories at its award ceremony in Frankfurt, Germany.

“We are honored to receive such a prestigious award. This recognition speaks directly to our expertise in smart garments, wearable design and material developments,” said Davide Vigano, CEO and co-founder of Sensoria. “Our company is proud to create an award-winning product line of health and fitness technology that seamlessly infuses into the fabrics that people are already wearing, such as t-shirts, sports bras and footwear. This innovation allows users to comfortably and accurately measure important fitness metrics in a more familiar way.”

The Future Textile Awards program recognizes companies with visionary leadership and groundbreaking partnerships. An example is Sensoria’s recent partnership with VIVOBAREFOOT, the leading global producer of barefoot shoes, to integrate its technology into a new pressure sensing running shoe. This new smart shoe helps users detect forces, such as impact score, foot landing and contact time metrics with extreme precision through Sensoria Core technology.

Sensoria Core, a key innovation that led to Sensoria’s award recognition, is at the center of the Sensoria Development Kit, which provides footwear, sports apparel and lifestyle brands with the tools to harness the same technology components used in Sensoria’s smart garment running system. In addition to these B2B use cases, Sensoria Core is integrated into Sensoria’s in-house product line, including its new Sensoria Sock 2.0. These upgraded, ultra-light socks detect crucial core metrics, including cadence, foot landing and impact forces exerted by runners.
