Smart Shirt Makes Things Easier for Hospital Patients

by Hazel Chua

The hospital is one of my least favorite places in the world. I just get a negative vibe whenever I’m in one, although I haven’t really had a particularly traumatic experience inside one myself. What I have tried, though, was being admitted to a hospital a few years ago because I had been a running a high fever for several days straight.

One of the hassles of being an in-patient is that you’re often hooked up on to monitoring machines and are literally confined in your hospital room. However, a team from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain want to change that with their Nuubo smart shirt.

Obviously, this shirt is no ordinary piece of clothing. You can think of it like a portable monitoring machine that you can wear to keep track of your vital signs, and can alert doctors and nurses if anything is amiss. It’s also embedded with a GPS unit that will let hospital staff locate you if you wander too far away from your ward. Moreover, the shirt can even be programmed to run an EKG chest remotely with the push of a button.

The shirt is currently being put on a trial run in a hospital environment, and I hope it’s something we’ll be able to see in use in hospitals very soon.
