MEASURING AND TRANSMITTING VITAL BODY SIGNS USING MEMS SENSORS.
With advancement in technology and science electronics have been getting smaller and smaller, which enables researchers and scientist to weave the electronics and interconnections into the fabrics. This new technology enables to establish a new concept called electronics textiles (e-textiles) which allow cost-effective and efficient solutions for various applications.
In this project, the main idea is monitoring vital body signs by placing the electronics device into a garment in a compact way. Among many vital body signs, posture, respiration rate and body activities like walking running have been monitored. The measurements have been performed with a mems based technology. The electronic components have been placed in to the fabric to form the art-shirt TO MONITOR BODY SIGNS. COLLECTED DATA FROM VARIOUS SUBJECTS WITH ARF--Shirt system have been transmitted by rf transmission and monitored in real-time.
