Myant knits and integrates sensors and actuators into textile to create an ubiquitous platform for human-computer interface that, thanks to its bidirectional capabilities, enables better health and wellness through data collection, analysis and personalized responses. In creating continuous and ambient access to the human body, Myant is leading the development of Society 5.0, a “human-centered society that balances economic advancement with the resolution of social problems by a system that highly integrates cyberspace and physical space “and creating a more harmonious union of humans and the digital world.

With a background in electrical engineering, Tony came to Canada in 1990 and quickly saw an opportunity to upset traditional electronics markets with new products and business strategies.

The creation of Myant builds on those two decades of experience in electronics and material science and was spurred by personal family tragedy that led to the realization that there is an urgent need for change with how we manage health, and heath care – as a start. Myant is making this a reality with an interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, technicians, fashion designers and strategists, and a full end-to-end enterprise.
