Smart clothes for better healthcare

This takes tele-patient monitoring to the next level 🙂

“Comfortable smart clothes that monitor the wearer’s heart, breathing and body temperature promise to revolutionise healthcare by reducing hospital visits and allowing patients to lead more active lives.”

Sounds like something from a science friction movie or academic vision eh, well its not, there is a health-wear project that is capitalising on the advancements in e-textile and mobile telecommunications technologies for the development of new services with applications in health-care (The shirt, sweater, coat can be a computing devise).

Do read the original article from ICT Results if you are interested (they have a nice video demonstrating the actual smart clothes).
