This study reports on a novel Smart-Fabric based wireless Body Area Sensor Network for assessing psychological and physiological work risk levels. The combination of smart-sensing fabrics advantages, high electronic miniaturization, and the latest machine learning enables the system to assess the risk level of the worker. The body area sensor network includes a smartphone, an artificial intelligence algorithm for risk assessment, and a set of sensor-nodes integrated into a textile substrate (i… 
Machine Learning based Anomaly Detection for Smart Shirt: A Systematic Review
The results showed that 6 types of anomalies were identified, with the Fall anomaly being the most cited and the Support Vector Machines (SVM) algorithm is most used.

The results of the experimental characterization of the intra-body channel loss have been carried out successfully in order to validate the theoretical model employed for the radar system analysis and the relevant performance are resulted in excellent agreement with those expected by post-layout simulations.
SeisMote: A Multi-Sensor Wireless Platform for Cardiovascular Monitoring in Laboratory, Daily Life, and Telemedicine
This article presents a new wearable platform, SeisMote, for the monitoring of cardiovascular function in controlled conditions and daily life. It consists of a wireless network of sensorized nodes
On the use of wearable physiological monitors to assess heat strain during occupational heat stress.
Workers in many industries are required to perform arduous work in high heat-stress conditions, which can lead to rapid increases in body temperature that elevate the risk of heat-related illness and
How the Autonomic Nervous System and Driving Style Change With Incremental Stressing Conditions During Simulated Driving
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) changes were investigated in terms of heart rate variability, respiration activity, and electrodermal response along with mechanical information such as that coming from steering wheel angle corrections, velocity changes, and time responses.
A longitudinal, mixed methods investigation of newly qualified nurses’ workplace stressors and stress experiences during transition
Transition in newly qualified nurses through an exploration of their stressors and stress experiences during their first 12 months postqualifying, which are intrinsically entwined with their transition.
Nurse turnover: the mediating role of burnout.
The results of this study suggest what may be the most appropriate areas to target for interventions to reduce the risk of nurses exiting early from their chosen career.
Nursing churn and turnover in Australian hospitals: nurses perceptions and suggestions for supportive strategies
Nursing turnover is influenced by the experiences of nurses, and improving performance management and work design are strategies that nurse managers could harness to reduce turnover.
