The Chronious Project Smart T-Shirt Keeps Tabs on Medical Conditions

The Chronious Project Smart T-Shirt is the perfect solution for those who are health conscious and want to keep a handle on their medical wellness—but hate going to the doctor for routine checkups.

While it is designed for those who have chronic and life-threatening diseases, the shirt can be altered to monitor specific other bodily functions. At its base level the tee keeps tabs on heart and respiratory activity using sensors that are fitted into the fabric.

However, the sensors have the ability to be altered in both placement and monitoring capabilities to allow the patient to do their own checkups from home.

The sensors relay all of the data collected to a smartphone application that then crunches the numbers into meaningful analysis, allowing the patient to avoid making numerous trips to their physician.
