 training support for athelete.  tracking of professional truck driver’s vital signs to alert them of fatigue. .  monitoring of individuals who work with hazardous elements. remote monitoring of patients.

. Use of wearable monitoring devices allow continuous monitoring of physiological signals.  Wearable systems are totally non-obtrusive devices that allow physicians to overcome the limitations of ambulatory technology.  detects events predictive of possible worsening of the patient’s clinical situations.

.A biosensor is a device for the detection of an analyte that combines a biological component with a physio-chemical detector component.

Signal processor.Consists of 3 parts: 1. Physiochemical component. Biological component 2. . 3.

. Easy to wear and take off.  Initial cost is high.  Continous monitoring.  Battery life is less.

 Certain individuals are susceptible to anaphylaxis reaction (an allergic reaction) when stung by a bee or spider and need a shot of adrenaline immediately to prevent further fatalities. Smart shirt technology opens up existing opportunities to develop adaptive & responsive systems that can think & act based on the user conditions stimuli & environment. . by applying advancements in MEMS(Micro-Electrochemical systems) technology we can achieve that.  The Smarts shirt’s delta acquisition capabilities can be used to detect the condition when an individual is lapsing into a diabetic shock and this integrated feedback mechanism can provide the appropriate response to prevent a fatality.

 Just as special-purpose chips and processors can be plugged into a computer motherboard to obtain the the required information processing capability.It is anticipated that the smart shirt will bring personalized & affordable healthcare monitoring to the population at large. the smart shirt is an information infrastructure in which the wearer can “plug in” the desired sensors and devices.  Just as the spreadsheet pioneered the field of information processing that brought “computing to the masses”. thereby creating a system for monitoring vital signs in an efficient and cost effective manner with a “universal” interface of clothing. .
