Applied Signal Processing for Textile-Enabled Physiological Measurement Systems

This project investigates how signal processing techniques can be applied to facilitate the implementation of personalized health monitoring systems with the use of textile technology

Start date


End date


New developments in textile technologies are producing new conductive fibers and fabrics that have the potential to be used as transducers for physiological measurements enabling novel monitoring applications. The successful integration of functional textile-based transducers in a medical measurement system does not only require expertise in textile technology and measurements instrumentation, but also signal-processing methods and techniques specifically applied to the physiological or biophysical object of interest.
