The eT-Shirt, A New Advancement for Monitoring Patients

Scientists and researchers at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid created this particular high-tech tank top with a number of health monitoring tools embedded into the clothing’s fabric. These tools include: a removable thermometer, accelerometer and a GPS chip (which is actually housed in a pocket, but will be sewn into the fabric in later versions of the eT-Shirt).

The creators of the eT-Shirt have also integrated the shirt into the Locating & Biomonitoring by means of Wireless Networks in Hospitals (LOBIN) in order to assist in reducing hospital stay times and sent out SMS alerts to doctors and other members of hospital staff who are working with those particular patients to keep track of the wearer’s health.
