T-Shirt for Vital Parameter Monitoring
The ability to remotely monitor, non-invasively, some vital signs of patients undergoing rehabilitation therapy at home helps to decrease the public health costs while increasing the comfort of the patient, which is monitored in his home environment. The research focuses on the development of a T-shirt with sensors for measuring heart rate, respiratory rate and accelerations for information on the posture of the patient. The acquired data are then sent wirelessly to a remote monitoring station located separately and connected to the network for telemedicine applications. The physiological parameters can be recorded and analyzed continuously during rehabilitation activities. Proper evaluation of these parameters allows the doctor to know remotely the vital signs, to immediately assess sudden changes in health status of the patient.
