Rehabilitation Can Be Monitored With Wearable Technology
2012-12-14 12:15:50

BioMed Central Wearable technology is not only for sports and fashion enthusiasts it can also be used to monitor and aid clinical rehabilitation according to new research published in BioMed Central's open access journal BioMedical Engineering OnLine. Neurorehabilitation researchers from Italy have developed a low cost, wearable system, consisting of strain sensors made of conductive elastomers printed onto fabric. A low voltage battery powers the sensors, which are then able to send...

Wearable Sensor Helps Map Environment
2012-09-25 21:22:56

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online MIT researchers have developed a prototype sensor array that can be worn on the chest to automatically map out an environment surrounding the wearer. The wearable sensor system can create a digital map of the environment that the person who is using it is moving in. During experiments, students wore the sensor system while wandering halls at MIT. The sensors wirelessly relayed data back to a laptop in a conference room, and...

The Death Of The Battery?
2012-06-17 03:00:00

Battery-powered devices could soon be a thing of the past thanks to a group of UK researchers who have created a novel energy harvester to power some of the latest wearable gadgets. By strapping the energy harvester to the knee joint, a user could power body-monitoring devices such as heart rate monitors, pedometers and accelerometers by simply walking and not have the worry of running out of power and replacing batteries. Soldiers may find this device particularly useful as they often...
