Paris, France, March 13, 2022 – Chronolife, connected health services operator, announces a development and supply contract with Europrotect, key player in the field of technical textiles for human protection in Europe and coordinator of the ETINCELS project.
The agreement covers the development and integration of sensors and electronic components for the collection of physiological and environmental data in equipment intended for Civil Security, particularly for firefighters, to prevent thermal stress, alert the wearer and thus improve his/her safety.

We look forward to assessing their performances in real-life conditions. »
