Wearable Electronics To Monitor Your Heart Rate

Japanese NTT has developed wearable textile electrodes which when worn inside of the short monitor your heart's parameters. These electrodes are fabricated using a type of a conductive fiber made up of silk or synthetic fiber core coated with a conductive polymer called PEDOT-PSS. The research team says that this new polymer has excellent biocompatability - and can pick up ECG measurement with the stability of conventional methods. The electrodes themselves do not need to be pasted to the skin using a gel or electrolyte paste.

These textile electrodes are even softer to touch and allow comfortable feeling. These polymers are flexible & breathable as well - allowing for long term monitoring of heart parameters without any burden to the wearer. NTT claims that they've conducted studies to ensure that there's no irritation or contact dermatitis after a long-term use.

The company now plans to take a step ahead and experiment the technology with about 100 wearers to ensure the safety and effectiveness. It's expected that wearable electronics will play an important role in the medical field - allowing reduction of risk of heart attacks and other irregularities. Check out the video with English captions to know more.

Very similar kind of project to this has been done in Gujarat by diploma students which GTU Innovation has published in the website. The project's name is : Patient Monitoring through GSM Modem.

Would you care to explain it?

How does that apply to Suzuki, Yamaha & Playstation 4?

sometime back i bought a similar-looking product, called the electronic massager. its function was to massage and relieve the pain of your body parts.

it had the same kind of body-attaching pads, connected by cables to a hand-held device.

the device would send electronic signals to the pads, which would then convert it into mechanical vibrations, and perform the massaging action.

the part of your body to which you would fix the pads would be massaged.

but my feedback on this product: it simply did not serve the purpose !

well i never patronized playstation.

as for yamaha and suzuki, well they sell lesser than honda and hero motocorp.

suzuki is the worst. its bikes like heat, slingshot, zeus, etc are rarities on the road.

zaveri - By the way, Honda is Japanese too, and so are Toyota, Casio, Citizen, Sony, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Isuzu and Mazda which are known globally for their quality.
And it is Suzuki which manufactures the Hayabusa and Bandit brands of motorbikes.
Musicians are well aquainted with Yamaha and Korg brands for a diverse range of musical instruments.
Sorry to disagree with you on this pal. Maybe your negative experience with a certain Japanese product has moulded your opinion but that cannot be taken as a generalisation.

Do you think Indians need guidance in preventing others from stealing their intellectual property ??
mail154
mail154 • Jul 26, 2013
yes..they need..many of the discoveries were the result of hardwork of indians sometimes it was ignored..sometimes a minor change were made on the discovery and advertised to masses. some of them were totally unnoticed.

How on earth can it be done seriously no one has a tutorial for how to get a patent? How to reveal once own intellectual property to the world and stuff

I think a better explanation to them can be provided here as well What say?

yes i accept they need explanation and guidance but before the arrival of process of getting an ownership for a product, believe me we have done wonders. another reason why we didn't need that was the our older generations doesn't wanted to get proud and fame for their intellectual property but done it is a service to mankind. i am still proud of it. 😀

I am aware of that as well

But some person coming to India and telling that his product can do all stuff which a local school boy in India designed and sell it to Indians blindly this is not fair
