With the technology miniaturization and wireless revolution, electronics have found new applications in the form of flexible wearables for monitoring purposes. Ongoing research on wearable electronic systems has resulted in a number of prototype garments that can monitor and relay various types of data. As a review of the latest development in this area, this paper outlines and discusses the various components required for such a system, including sensors, actuators, circuitry and power management. © The Institute of Measurement and Control 2007.
