Smart textiles: how electronics merge into our clothing

2019 20th International Conference on Thermal, Mechanical and Multi-Physics Simulation and Experiments in Microelectronics and Microsystems (EuroSimE), 2019

Smart textiles are textiles with integrated sensors, data processing, communication and power units and can be regarded as a new application field for microelectronic devices. It largely benefits from a series of recent developments: sensors become smaller, more reliable and require less power and, on the other hand, energy harvesting techniques are continuously improving as well as energy storage devices ...


Design of a Wearable Monopole RFID Antenna Integrated in Smart Clothing for Tracking Human Movements

2018 International Symposium on Advanced Electrical and Communication Technologies (ISAECT), 2018

In this paper, we present a new design of wearable planar monopole RFID antenna. It is designed to operate in Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band of 2.45 GHz, which makes it a tracking candidate for body worn RFID passive application. The proposed antenna consists of a truncated ground plane of dimensions 90mmx18mx0.035mm, and using the wearable Jeans substrate with ...


Advances in textile sensing and actuation for e-textile applications

2008 30th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2008

SMART fabrics and interactive textiles (SFIT) are conceived as innovative textile structure integrating sensing, actuation, electronic, and power and/or communication functions. Due to their multifunctional interactivity, enabled by wearable devices that are flexible and conformable to the human body, e-textiles are considered relevant promoters of a higher quality of life and progress in biomedicine, as well as in several health-focused ...


Short-Range Tracking Using Smart Clothing Sensors : A case study of using low power wireless sensors for pateints tracking in a nursing home setting

2018 IEEE 3rd International Conference on Communication and Information Systems (ICCIS), 2018

Nursing homes accommodate a high concentration of elderly patients often with cognitive or mobility impairments. Managing the evacuation process of a nursing home can be particularly challenging in the event of a natural disaster. This paper presents a case study involving interdisciplinary research in machine intelligence and communications on the use of active low- power transceivers embedded in smart clothing ...


Pressure sensitive shoe insoles and socks for rehabilitation applications

2018 IEEE 12th International Conference on Application of Information and Communication Technologies (AICT), 2018

The foot pressure distribution, while standing, walking, or running, is an important parameter for gait analysis and feet health status in the field of sports, rehabilitation, or medical applications. In this paper, we show a system for improving medical rehabilitation for patients after musculoskeletal operations. Postoperative surgery for knee surgery is usually due to excessive movement during the rehabilitation phase. ...

  • Smart textiles: how electronics merge into our clothing

    Smart textiles are textiles with integrated sensors, data processing, communication and power units and can be regarded as a new application field for microelectronic devices. It largely benefits from a series of recent developments: sensors become smaller, more reliable and require less power and, on the other hand, energy harvesting techniques are continuously improving as well as energy storage devices as flexible batteries and super capacitors. Based on these rapid developments it is not unlikely to expect that in the near future we indeed will have textiles with an integrated battery less sensor network which will continuously monitor the health of patients, soldiers or you yourself. In this paper we show that before these e-textiles are as widely spread and accepted as our cell phones, a number of hurdles must be taken first.

  • Design of a Wearable Monopole RFID Antenna Integrated in Smart Clothing for Tracking Human Movements

    In this paper, we present a new design of wearable planar monopole RFID antenna. It is designed to operate in Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) band of 2.45 GHz, which makes it a tracking candidate for body worn RFID passive application. The proposed antenna consists of a truncated ground plane of dimensions 90mmx18mx0.035mm, and using the wearable Jeans substrate with \pmb εr=1.68, Loss Tangent of \pmb δ = 0.025 and a thickness 1 mm. The feed- line is connected with the radiating element of the antenna at a convenient driving point position, which results in a good impedance matching, low return loss and voltage standing wave ratio. The simulated results from CST software are used to design and compare the performance of the antenna. The proposed antenna gives good performance in context of efficiency, Return loss (S11), gain and bandwidth.

Due to their multifunctional interactivity, enabled by wearable devices that are flexible and conformable to the human body, e-textiles are considered relevant promoters of a higher quality of life and progress in biomedicine, as well as in several health-focused disciplines, such as biomonitoring, rehabilitation, telemedicine, teleassistance, ergonomics and sport medicine.

  • Short-Range Tracking Using Smart Clothing Sensors : A case study of using low power wireless sensors for pateints tracking in a nursing home setting

    Nursing homes accommodate a high concentration of elderly patients often with cognitive or mobility impairments. Managing the evacuation process of a nursing home can be particularly challenging in the event of a natural disaster. This paper presents a case study involving interdisciplinary research in machine intelligence and communications on the use of active low- power transceivers embedded in smart clothing for the dynamic tracking management of patients through mobile access points. The process starts with intelligent event detection, which blends multiple data types from disparate sources as input signals to a near-real-time (NRT) event detection machine (EDM). The NRT EDM is a flexible framework that incorporates a plug-in classifier that can be trained to recognize unusual events, such as outbreak of fire. Preliminary evaluation tests have been conducted to validate the efficacy of the prototype system with encouraging results recorded.

  • Pressure sensitive shoe insoles and socks for rehabilitation applications

    The foot pressure distribution, while standing, walking, or running, is an important parameter for gait analysis and feet health status in the field of sports, rehabilitation, or medical applications. In this paper, we show a system for improving medical rehabilitation for patients after musculoskeletal operations. Postoperative surgery for knee surgery is usually due to excessive movement during the rehabilitation phase. Non-invasive and gentle surgical procedures mean that patients are less likely to experience pain and are using their musculoskeletal system too early. With the presented solution consisting of pressure-sensitive shoe insoles and socks, we show a system for detecting overload conditions. We discuss the construction, the hardware and software architecture of the proposed solution, and show first measurement results.

  • ISWC 2017: Riding the Waves of Wearables

    The annual International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC) is the flagship conference on all topics related to wearable computing and the ideal venue to present and learn about cutting-edge research in the field. The authors share their observations from the most recent gathering, held in September 2017 in Maui, Hawaii.
