Trying to lose some weight? Keep telling yourself you didn’t eat that much?
Or you suffer from diabetes and need to track down your eating habits?
Want to drink more water and need a constant reminder?
The scientists have recently invented this smart shirt.
This new technology can add textile sensors in the collar, that means that everything you eat or drink can be monitored.
Also, the behavior and the eating patterns can be observed and corrected.
For patients with chronic conditions like diabetes or other metabolic diseases, this piece of clothing can be a real lifesaver.
It’s monitoring dehydration, the amount of food you are eating and it’s also providing real data for overweight patients.
The real challenge for the researchers is integrating this technology in everyday life, but that shouldn’t be a problem, as the fabric of the textile sensors is very light and air-permeable.
It can be washed at the machine anytime, as the producers say.
That’s why clothing or any other accessories that people use every day are aimed by the scientists.
So, they gathered their ideas and forces with a Swiss clothes manufacturer and they are ready to mass produce innovative textiles in Europe.
If things go as planned, this kind of fabric will revolutionize the world: from sports clothing to monitor your activity levels, to car seats covers to adjust your posture or to make sure you keep your eyes on the road, or tracking the health status of firefighters, policemen or any other emergency team.
