San Diego, September 9, 2021 – Chronolife, a MedTech company and service operator, today announced a strategic multi-year partnership with Mission First Solutions, LLC, the leading government health IT provider that has been serving the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Defense Health Agency (DHA) on a global basis since 2016. The two companies will collaborate in developing and deploying a range of smart wearable-based health tech solutions purpose-built for the specific needs of U.S. army soldiers, military personnel, and veterans.
Chronolife has developed a CE and FCC approved monitoring device, based on a connected wearable t-shirt that is capable of continuously tracking wearers’ health status for a comprehensive set of physiological parameters. Mission First Solutions chose to partner with Chronolife because its connected t-shirt is machine-washable and worn just like any other comfortable undergarment, allowing continuous and reliable remote monitoring of soldiers without being intrusive to their daily rigorous activities, from intense training to actual combat operations. Offered as part of an end-to-end solution offering, Chronolife is able to meet the strictest, military-grade requirements in the design and production of these smart t-shirts catered to the specific needs of different military units and departments.
Initially under this partnership, Chronolife and Mission First Solutions will co-develop custom solutions that tackle two key challenges facing the military:
- The Effects of Stress on Job Functioning of Military Men and Women: Separated from their families while working in hazardous environments with extraordinary physical demands, “enlisted military” is ranked as the world’s most stressful job field. Unchecked stress can often lead to potentially major health risks that can compromise not just soldiers’ health status, but also mission-critical operations. As part of a dedicated risk prevention and reduction program, Chronolife’s smart wearable t-shirt will continuously monitor soldiers’ stress-related physiological signals, such as heart rate and respiratory rate, so that those with usually high stress levels can be proactively flagged and removed from the combat zone.
- Support Wounded Soldiers and Veterans Who Suffer from Chronic PTSD: Among veterans who served in active combat, 17% reported symptoms of PTSD. For this partnership, Chronolife and Mission First Solutions will work closely with the DHA in the healing and treatment of wounded soldiers and veterans, as PTSD is often associated with medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, asthma, chronic pain, and diabetes. Chronolife’s smart wearable t-shirt allows military medical professionals to monitor soldiers’ health status whether they’re at the hospital, in the field, or at home, ensuring the continuum of care and that health deterioration events are detected early.
“Mission First Solutions is thrilled to have Chronolife as a partner. The future of healthcare is remote monitoring capability outside of medical facilities, wearables and early detection, which is Chronolife’s expertise. The Chronolife technology will allow the defense health agency and the other government healthcare interests, to provide remote monitoring to anyone requiring it. Chronolife’s cutting edge technology and nimble adaptability creates a unique opportunity to change the way a person’s health is monitored and treated.”
“We’re excited to partner with government HIT leader Mission First Solutions in providing the highest level of tech-enabled care for U.S. soldiers, both on and off the battlefield, both mentally and physically,” said Laurent Vandebrouck, CEO of Chronolife. “It’s an exciting use case of our smart textile reference design offering and reinforces our mission in developing truly personalized health monitoring solutions that blend seamlessly into users’ flow of work and life.”

The company also designs and develops custom digital connected solutions tailored to our partner’s specific needs.
