New 'e-bra' to track health stats and send them directly to your smartphone
New York, May 12 (ANI): A team of researchers, including one of Indian-origin, has upgraded the trend of wearable sensors embedded into textiles by developing a new health-monitoring system, dubbed "e-bra", which is designed to be built into a sports bra.
Announced on Saturday from the University of Arkansas, the system features tiny wireless nanostructured, textile sensors - ideal for a sportsbra or a vest for men, which collects heart rate and health stats and sends them directly to your smartphone for data-crunching.
According to the press release, the system monitors blood pressure, body temperature, respiratory rate, oxygen consumption, "some neural activity", and readings similar to a conventional electrocardiograph, and even the ability to display inverted T waves, which indicate the onset of cardiac arrest.
"The system does not require a cuff or any extra accessories to measure blood pressure and could therefore replace conventional blood-pressure monitors," the New York Daily News quoted the release as reading.
Vijay Varadan, professor of electrical engineering, said that the "e-bra" monitors "pathophysiological changes"
"Our e-bra enables continuous, real-time monitoring to identify any pathophysiological changes," he said.
"It is a platform on which various sensors for cardiac-health monitoring are integrated into the fabric. The garment collects and transmits vital health signals to any desired location in the world," Varadan added. (ANI)
