The present paper critically analyzes the potential for commercially available nanoparticles for enhancing the flame-retardant properties of synthetic and natural fabrics and their corresponding blends. Each nanoparticle has been applied to the fabric through a finishing-like process (namely impregnation/exhausting or, more simply, nanoparticle adsorption)(More)
Wearable electronics is a natural application field of miniaturized sensors, low-power analog and digital devices, microcontrollers and efficient power conversion components, that are able to manage battery power in an optimal way. In the wearable electronics field for biomedical applications, smart textiles are very attractive as sensing devices. They can(More)
This work presents a wearable sensing system, aimed to monitor sweat pH and skin temperature in a noninvasive way. The wireless interface and the body coupling via a smart textile make it particularly comfortable and unobtrusive for the wearer; the applications extend from high risks patients hydration monitoring in a home-care environment, to fitness and(More)
