WEALTHY Wearable Health Care System


European researchers have recently completed the Wearable Health Care System project, otherwise known as WEALTHY.  In addition to being fashionable and slimming (Engadget office dress code requires us to wear something similar), the body suit will measure all manner of bodily processes, including respiration, core and surface skin temperature, position and movement.  What's more, it will also trasmit that data over the mobile phone network thanks to a miniaturized GPRS transmitter hidden in the suit.  That same trasmitter can even alert  emergency services if the wearer stops responding or shows alarming vital signs.
