Shaving any body hair around the sensors

For optimal signal quality, the sensors should be in direct contact with the skin. The shirt will operate well even with some hair in the way; wetting the electrodes or using a conductive cream will also help ensure good signal quality. 

If you experience signal quality issues, please make sure to:

  • Verify the size of your Hexoskin shirt is in accordance with our sizing charts and your measurements.
  • Use the thoracic and abdominal adjustable belts on the front of your Hexoskin shirt to get a better fit.
  • Apply a nickel-sized amount of conductive cream (glycerin-based cream) on each electrode of your shirt after you have put on the shirt.
  • Wear the Hexoskin shirt directly against your skin without any additional layers such as a shirt or a bra underneath.
  • Carefully inspect both the outside and inside of the Hexoskin shirt, with a particular focus on the sensors. Look for any visible signs of damage or wear and tear.
  • Validate that you are following the correct care instructions for your Shirt and Device

If required, make sure to contact for further assistance regarding signal quality issues.
