Functional textiles are seen as promising technology to enable healthcare services and medical care outside hospitals due to their ability to integrate textile-based sensing and monitoring technologies into the daily life. In the past much effort has been spent onto basic functional textile research already showing that reliable monitoring solutions can be(More)
Measurement of hemodynamic parameters such as stroke volume (SV) via impedance cardiography (ICG) is an easy, non-invasive and inexpensive way to assess the health status of the heart. We present a possibility to use this technology for monitoring risk patients at home. The IMPACT Shirt (IMPedAnce Cardiography Textile) has been developed with integrated(More)
Non-invasive monitoring of a patient’s vital signs outside the medical centre is essential for the remote management of chronic cardiovascular diseases (CVD), such as Heart Failure (HF) and Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). In this work we present preliminary results from pre-clinical testing of the IMAGE sensing platform, a wearable device which we designed(More)
Plastic optical fibres (POF) are often used in telecommunication, consumer electronics and automotive applications. Measuring and control devices used for POF are already standardised procedures. To meet the requirements of the IEEE 1394 standard for data transfer rates up to 800Mbps requires increasingly improved performance of POF. POFs which offer high(More)
