To obtain maximum unobtrusiveness with sensors for monitoring health parameters on the human body, two technical solutions are combined. [...] Key Method Secondly, the sensors are integrated into textile, so complete fusion with a wearable garment is enabled. We are presenting the first successful measurements with such sensors.Expand
Surface electromyography using textile-based electrodes
Surface Electromyography (sEMG) is a fundamental method for study the biomechanical behavior of a person, allowing the extraction of valuable information for health professionals. This paper presentsExpand
