conductive fabric being used for diagnostic devices

At Gm Design Development, we have recently been testing some amazing electrically conductive fabric for use in a healthcare application. The material shown feels just like any piece of standard clothing, but it conducts reliably. There are many types available, from silky feel material to conductive foam. As a keen sportsman and rugby player, I see many applications where a fitness watch would not be viable, but a specific monitoring product using fabric would work. Intelligent clothing could be used to help monitor elderly patients or relatives in a non-intrusive way, for early intervention should they fall ill, linking via a mobile app.
