The world's ageing population has led to an urgent need for long-term and patient-centered healthcare solutions. Hence, there is a growing need for wearable systems for physiologic monitoring. While various biosignals are monitored with traditional approaches, it is worthwhile to investigate alternative sensing techniques in order to improve accessibility and understanding of patients' conditions. This paper presents our laboratory's development of such a wearable system, which makes use of unconventional techniques for physiologic monitoring. With its integrated textile electrocardiogram (ECG) electrodes, intelligent finger-ring photoplethysmogram (PPG) sensor, miniaturized optical fiber-based temperature sensor, eye dynamics monitor, global positioning system (GPS) module, and wireless capability, it demonstrates a feasible solution for ubiquitous healthcare.
