Personal sensing wear: the role of textile sensors (2015)

Abstract Wearable sensors for fitness tracking are becoming increasingly popular and are set to increase as smartwatches begin to dominate the wearable technology market. Wearable technology provides the capacity to track long-term trends in the wearer’s health. In order for this to be adopted the technology must be easy to use and comfortable to wear. Textile based sensors are ideal as they conform to the body and can be integrated into the wearer’s everyday wardrobe. This work discusses fabric stretch sensors that can measure body movements. An application using a sensor glove for home assessment of Rheumatoid Arthritis is presented. This work is the result of a multidisciplinary effort, involving expertise in material science and functional design, computer science, human health and performance and influenced by the end user needs.
