Bart Klaassen, a PhD student at the University of Twente in the Netherlands, has developed a piece of medical equipment for his doctoral thesis called the INTERACTION System. Rather than a massive device like an fMRI machine, Klaassen's INTERACTION System is small and light enough to be worn on one's body -- in fact, it is a suit is designed for just that.

The INTERACTION System is a suit loaded with sensors that is designed to better monitor those who are recovering from a stroke. The suit, which is made of a light and flexible material so that it can be comfortably worn under one's normal clothes, has 41 sensors placed at strategic points throughout. These sensors transmit and store various essential medical data that can give professionals a better picture of the patient's recovery process.
