We present a wearable real-time shiver monitor based on the MIThril LiveNet system, a flexible distributed mobile platform that can be used for a variety of proactive healthcare applications. In this exploratory study, we demonstrate that shivering can be accurately determined from continuous accelerometer sensing. Our preliminary results also indicate that shivering characteristics may be correlated with core body temperature, indicating the potential for creating a real-world cold exposure monitoring and classification wearable system.
