AAAS News Release - "Science: Monitoring Vital Signs through Stretchable Electronic Skin" An ultra-thin electronic device attaches to the skin like a temporary tattoo and measures heart rate and other vital signs without the bulky electrodes used in current hospital monitoring, reports a new study in the 11 August issue of the journal Science. The device could also potentially be used as an electronic bandage to speed up healing in wounds, burns, and other skin conditions, and it could even provide touch sense to prosthetic devices such as artificial legs or arms. The complicated wiring involved in current hospital monitoring can be inconvenient and distressing for both patients and doctors. For example, a patient with heart disease is usually required to wear a bulky monitor for a month or more in order to capture abnormal but rare cardiac events.

A pressure mapping device with Bragg grating sensors inscribed in bow-tie fibres
Application of a Fiber Optic Distributed Strain Sensor System to Woven E-Glass Composite A distributed strain sensing system utilizing a series of identically written Bragg gratings along an optical fiber is examined for potential application to Composite Armored Vehicle health monitoring. A vacuum assisted resin transfer molding process was used to fabricate a woven fabric E-glass/composite panel with an embedded fiber optic strain sensor. Test samples machined from the panel were mechanically tested in 4-point bending. Experimental results are presented that show the mechanical strain from foil strain gages comparing well to optical strain from the embedded sensors. Also, it was found that the distributed strain along the sample length was consistent with the loading configuration.

1 Introduction It is estimated that up to 33.6% of spinal cord injured (SCI) patients have serious tissue breakdown, i.e. pressure ulcer (PU) , at pressure areas due to excessive pressure in prolonged sitting [1, 2, 9, 19]. PUs involving sub-dermal tissue damage, where damage originates in muscle tissue, were recently termed “deep tissue injury” by the US National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel , and are attracting growing attention from the medical community. This fact asserts that the responses in deep tissues, in addition to the interface pressure on the buttocks, should be evaluated in studies related to PUs. Some studies suggested a need to establish the associations between external mechanical loads and the internal local mechanical condition of the tissue [6, 7]. Evaluation of a new sitting concept designed for prevention of pressure ulcer on the buttock using finite element analysis

Pressure changes under the ischial tuberosities of seated individuals during sacral nerve root stimulation
Pressure mapping - ATWiki From ATWiki Interface pressure mapping involves using sensors to quantify the pressure between two contacting objects, such as a person and their support surface. Pressure mapping has many wide spread applications, but in assistive technology it is commonly used by clinicians to determine the suitability of a wheelchair cushion and by researchers investigating support surfaces, risk factors for ulceration, and ulcer prevention protocols.

Sensing Fabrics, E-Textile Solutions, Flat-Knitting Technology Abstract In this paper is reported the experience gained in the last five years, in the implementation of wearable systems for personalized health care and their evolution in time. Sensing bio clothes for vital signs monitoring and wearable systems for gesture and posture recognition are specifically illustrated, resulting from the EU funded projects: Wealthy and My Heart. In the last few years, monitoring systems based on multifunctional instrumented garments are playing an innovative role in the development of more human oriented monitoring devices. Smart fabrics allow the monitoring of patients over extended period, in a natural contest, in biomedicine, as well as in several health-focused disciplines, such as bio-monitoring, rehabilitation, telemedicine, tele-assistance, ergonomics and sport medicine .
