Abstract

Due to drastic changes in climatic conditions, winters are getting much colder, summers are getting much hotter. Uttermost hot or cold conditions are greater threat to health. These circumstances might cause genuine medical problems. At very high temperature most common problem is heart attack and overcooling of body is major problem during extreme colder conditions. As the application of technology has increased in every sector, it has also been introduced in textiles too. Electronics textiles in general referred as smart fabrics are quite trendy now. The main motto of this is to design a smart jacket which aims for providing reliable health during all the climatic conditions and can also sense the temperature using sensors. The major application for smart jacket is that it can be used for soldiers as they are triumph in war. This jacket helps in areas to find the temperature control and health monitoring. These jackets are not only useful for common people, but also to physically challenged people to make their life easier. Consequently for monitoring health and heart rate of body health monitoring apparatus have been established in the jacket as well.

Keywords: Smart fabrics, Heating/ Module, Heart rate, health monitoring, ECG.
