ECG Monitoring via Apparel for Female Firefighter’s Safety (III)
Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring becomes essential as an early warning sign to detect related to heart conditions. Firefighters are a high-risk group working in a high stress environment and need a specially designed smart clothing solution to monitor their health. For this project, smart clothing was created aimed at developing future solutions to support the management of heart disease as well as provide support for daily health monitoring for fire fighters. This project developed a prototype garment which could be worn by firefighters as a base layer or as part of the station uniform which could monitor the health of the fire fighter through a constant ECG reading as they work.
