Textile-based sensors offer an unobtrusive method of continually monitoring physiological parameters during daily activities. Chemical analysis of body fluids, noninvasively, is a novel and exciting area of personalized wearable healthcare systems. BIOTEX was an EU-funded project that aimed to develop textile sensors to measure physiological parameters and(More)
Smart clothes increase the efficiency of long-term non-invasive monitoring systems by facilitating the placement of sensors and increasing the number of measurement locations. Since the sensors are either garment-integrated or embedded in an unobtrusive way in the garment, the impact on the subject's comfort is minimized. However, the main challenge of(More)
The main purpose of the European project ProeTEX is to develop equipment to improve safety, coordination and efficiency of emergency disaster intervention personnel like fire-fighters or civil protection rescuers. The equipment consists of a new generation of "smart" garments, integrating wearable sensors which will allow monitoring physiological(More)

BACKGROUND Participation in phase-III cardiac rehabilitation (CR) remains low but adherence could potentially be improved with supervised home-based CR. New technological approaches are needed to provide sufficient supervision with respect to safety and performance of individual exercise programmes. DESIGN The newly designed closed-loop tool, HeartCycle's(More)
Proetex is a European Integrated Project dedicated to microand nano-technology-based wearable equipment for emergency operators. During the first year of work, a careful analysis of several emergency scenarios has been carried out and has resulted in the design of a complete “smart” uniform for fire-fighters and emergency rescuers. These garments aim at(More)
Sweat analysis can provide a valuable insight into a persons well-being. Here we present wearable textile-based sensors that can provide real-time information regarding sweat activity. A pH sensitive dye incorporated into a fabric fluidic system is used to determine sweat pH. To detect the onset of sweat activity a sweat rate sensor is incorporated into a(More)
The HeartCycle EU research project aims to provide disease management solutions for cardiac patients. Developed within HeartCycle, IMAGE is a wearable device capable of acquiring ECG, bioimpedance, and acceleration measurements. The acquired signals are stored in onboard memory and processed, while the results are wirelessly transmitted in real time to a(More)
The advent of telecommunication and information technologies and the miniaturisation of technologies have enabled the evolution of telemonitoring systems. Early systems for hospitals and clinics, which usually required the patients to be wired to desktop devices, have evolved into homecare that requires devices to be lighter and simpler to use. In addition(More)

Early diagnosis as well as a healthy and preventive lifestyle can help slowing the onset of many health problems and save millions of lives per year. To achieve this objective, long-term monitoring of human vital signs are required to obtain knowledge on a person's health status. Continuous monitoring of vital signs is mandatory, but continuous transmission(More)
