Textile based sensors which can be used to measure the chemical composition of bodily fluids represents a major advancement in the area of wearable technology. BIOTEX is an EU funded project aiming to develop such sensors with a particular interest in monitoring perspiration. A textile based fluid handling system has been developed for sample collection and transport. Sodium, conductivity and pH sensors have also been developed. This paper details the integration and testing of these sensors. Results show that the developed system can collect and analyze sweat in real time during exercise and transmit this data wirelessly to a remote receiver.
