Steps: count steps
Calories: measure calories burned based on activity
Posture: detect posture and use haptic feedback to remind user to stand straight
Speech: detect how often a user is speaking to determine amount of social interaction taking
Activity: nudge users to be active after prolonged periods of sitting
Sleep: measure sleep cycles using a combination of HR, breathing and temperature to help users improve sleep efficiency
Wake up: use haptic feedback to wake up user during ideal part of sleep cycle
Breathing: learn to control your breathing to reduce stress
Heat: garment heats up when it senses you’re cold
Light: garment lights up when cycling, running, roadwork, police etc. to improve safety
ECG: continuous monitoring of ECG, HR and HRV allows you pick up signals that identify a larger issue. Could potentially predict strokes, cardiac arrest, other conditions
Smart thermostat: nest thermostat adjusts temperature based on your skin temperature
Smart lighting: philips hue lightbulbs adjust colour of light based on your mood/stress
Connected speaker systems: using a streaming service such as Spotify, speaker can play music based on your mood/stress
Smart Lock: ECG signal can identify individual and unlock door
Alert authorities: alert authorities when in trouble (determined by stress, trauma) and inform them of location
Autonomous cars: connect biometrics to autonomous cars, allowing car to take you to hospital in case of emergency
Payment: pay for things through ECG authentication
Your doctor: doctor has your biometrics before you visit and can predict future illness and better treat current illness
Gesture: control other devices with your movement
Humidity: get alerted of skin humidity and reminded to drink more water if suboptimal
Defibrillator: recognize a user is having cardiac arrest, and deliver countershock
Lymphedema: perform compressions of limbs of lymphedema patients remotely
VR: overlay biometrics on top of game play in VR games
How was your day: inform loved ones of stressful events/time periods so they can proactively check in
Fatigue: detect fatigue and use haptic feedback to help keep users alert during potentially dangerous situations (ie. driving)
Exercise: detect which activity is being performed (ie. running, cycling) and log details of workout
Stress: inform users when they are stressed and suggest breathing exercises, yoga, etc. Potentially use haptic feedback as a means to do this
Stress calendar: access user’s calendar and correlate stressful events to specific activities
Heat and exercise: garment heats up prior to exercise to help loosen up muscles
Stimulation: Relief of pain/nausea through stimulation sleeves, muscle strengthening for the elderly and those recovering from musculoskeletal injuries, assistance in the recovery and retraining of muscles for individuals who suffered a stroke, SCI, muscle dystrophy, etc.
Bioimpedance: Recording and tracking of edema in limbs for those suffering from edema related conditions.
EMG: Recording and tracking of muscle activity for AR/VR/gaming.
Pressure Sensing: Mattress cover monitoring pressure profile for a better sleep.
Stretch Sensing: Recording joint motion for quantification of gait.
Lighting: Adaptive lighting curtains for circadian cycle corrections.
