Electronic textiles for in situ biomechanical measurements
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes the benefits of and issues in designing and building an integrated, body-worn electronic textile (e-textile) system capable of assessing a suite of biomechanical measures. Unlike laboratory based systems, this system would be worn by a soldier and could be used in a range of environmental conditions. A prototype e-textile developed at Virginia Tech has already shown promising results in the area of gait analysis.
