Beyond Protocol Partners with Vanderbilt University on Biometric Wearable Technology


ATLANTA, Nov. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Beyond Protocol, the distributed ledger technology platform, is proud to announce a partnership with Vanderbilt University to use biometric technology to study mental health. The platform has already partnered with Cage the Elephant frontman Matt Shultz to integrate Beyond Protocol’s unhackable blockchain technology into his performances onstage, and NFL tight end Rob Gronkowski to have the athlete’s vitals sent securely via blockchain. The new partnership with Vanderbilt University will build on these use cases by capturing biometric data, and analyzing mental health metrics in performers and athletes.

“The Wond’ry, Vanderbilt University’s Innovation Center is pleased to be part of the Cage The Elephant tour through the development of adaptive clothing that soon will allow biometric data such as Matt Schultz’s brainwaves to be regularly monitored and part of the performance,” said Alexandra Sargent Capps, Director of the Wond’ry Fiber Arts Lab, Vanderbilt’s Innovation Center. “To see Beyond Protocol embracing apparel and its associated data while drawing attention to overall mental health and inclusivity promises to be an amazingly positive and productive collaboration.”
