Abstract

Various systems of wearable technologies and active clothing, which integrate electronic and control system components into textile materials or human wearable equipment, are examined in this work. Application of those systems for worker’s safety secure at workplaces is considered. Physiological parameters that describe human health state are being registered and analyzed to this end, using diagnostic means integrated into worker’s clothing. The major physiological parameters are reviewed and their registration methods and means are analysed in this work. The key attention is paid to potentiality of mobile and practical measurement means, which allow a long-term registering of forehead chosen physiological parameters, creation. According to analysis results achieved, the real-time health state monitoring system was proposed, including registration of two basic human physiological parameters and thus providing advanced diagnosis of health disorders. The schematic of feasible realisation of monitoring system, implemented as wearable technology was proposed in the work too.
