Heart monitoring for soldiers on the move.

Improved capacitive sensors that can be integrated with clothing--a chest belt or shirt--are providing accurate electrocardiogram measurements in a variety of circumstances. For example, the system can be incorporated on stretchers or gurneys to provide automatic ECG measurements.

The noninvasive system, which is a product of Quasar of San Diego, Calif., is being used as a portion of the "war fighter physiological status monitor" that has been integrated with the Army's future force warrior uniform.

The company is working with Adidas to include the capacitive sensors in sports clothing.
