A smart T-shirt which allows continuous monitoring and the 5G transmission of biovital parameters: this is the novelty presented at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona by ZTE is AccYouRate, after 6 years of study and collaboration.
YouCare is the name of the shirt made in Italy: gods polymeric sensors printed in the fabric, invisible and imperceptible, record the life parameters of the person without him noticing anything, and send them to a miniaturized control unit that converts data into digital format, up to transmit them, with 5G connection, at smartphone (or smartwatch) of the user.
If any abnormalities are found, an alarm signal will alert the user. If the anomalies are severe, they come emergency services alerted. Without direct diagnosis or therapy purposes, the smart T-shirt is able to analyze and report situations of interest or danger to the health of the individual. So this is not just a product for athletes, but for everyone.
The fabric can in fact be used for T-shirts, trousers, gloves, shoe insoles, masks, headbands, and any type of garment. It is a material that has the intelligence of a sensor capable of detecting very precise parameters, like a real one electrocardiogram, the breath, the sweat components, lo muscular effort, the temperature, and to transmit it via ultra-fast 5G ZTE connection for subsequent processing.
The patented and certified polymer can change people’s lives thanks to its dual use in the field health and work: he’s able to monitor health, stress, improving the safety and quality of life of workers, athletes, the elderly and in general of all populations affected by the advent of e-Health and 5G technology.
In the near future, AccYouRate is developing new types of sensors and comfortable and functional wearable products, capable of detecting other parameters, such as dynamic posture and brain waves.
