Wearable body monitors are reaching into sports and healthcare as preventive medicine gets active. The aim is to produce a garment that will record electrocardiogram (ECG) signals. The cardio-vascular system is not the only target. A 'smart bed' fitted with sensors has been worked on that is intended to help with the monitoring of insomnia and other sleep-related problems.
