Science behind Spire Health

The first truly comprehensive remote-monitoring solution in a revolutionary new form factor that’s as easy as putting on your clothes

Visualize Your Vital Signs

Improving your health starts with understanding the relationships between your respiratory patterns, your activity, and your sleep. Health Tags let you monitor your vital signs around-the-clock to see how they correlate and show you how to improve your total health.

Behind Health Tags

1: Ultrasuede Fabric

Health Tags are placed against your skin so it is important that they be flexible, hypoallergenic, soft, and comfortable.

2: Respiration Sensor

As you breathe, our proprietary respiration sensor measures your thoracic excursion to assess respiratory patterns, events, and distress.

3: Heart-Rate sensor (PPG)

Spire’s Photoplethysmography (PPG) Heart-Rate sensor measures your resting HR and also helps you determine how many calories you’ve burned.

4: 3-axis Accelerometer

Whether you’re taking a walk or working out, Spire’s 3-axis Accelerometer helps you log your steps and see how far you’ve gone.


Comprehensive Coverage, 24/7

Health Tags are discreet, unobtrusive, and designed for all-day wear. Spire Health’s clinical-grade sensors track your sleep, stress, activity, heart rate, and respiratory patterns, viewed as a dashboard of progress, guided exercises, and personalized recommendations to help improve sleep, reduce tension, and be more active.

When you’re awake, Spire’s algorithms analyze and classify your breathing into different states including calm, focus, and tension

When you’re active, advanced activity sensors track your calories, distance, and Heart Rate

When you’re asleep, your breathing patterns indicate your sleep cycles including Light REM, REM, Deep Sleep, and Awake time

Clinically-validated Studies

Health providers can leverage the Spire Health Platform to detect important health signals across a range of health conditions, such as COPD, asthma, opioid addiction/overdose, and elderly care, developing enabling appropriate interventions to better treat and manage patients.

IEEE peer-reviewed study shows Health Tag's accurate measurement of respiratory patterns and events. When compared with a medical-grade device, Tags have a 93-98% statistical correlation.

Research-backed Outcomes

A landmark study conducted by Stanford University at LinkedIn showed significant reduction in anxiety and stress when using Spire Health devices. In the study, Spire Health devices contributed to a 10% reduction in stress levels vs 4% reduction in the control.
