This work proposes an innovative textile sensor system to monitor dynamic body movement and human posture by attaching wearable digital sensors to analyze body motion. The proposed system can display and analyze signals when individuals are walking, running, veering around, walking up and down stairs, as well as falling down with a wearable monitoring system, which reacts to the coordination between the body and feet. Several digital sensor designs are embedded in clothing and wear apparel. Any pressure point can determine which activity is underway. Importantly, wearable digital sensors and a wearable monitoring system allow adaptive, real-time postures, real time velocity, acceleration, non-invasive, transmission healthcare, and point of care (POC) for home and non-clinical environments.
