Would you really like to sleep peacefully? Well, then get ready, because in a couple of years, the first smart pajamas in history will be marketed.
We talk about nanotechnologies applied to tissues of everyday use. As presented by a group of researchers from the
University of Massachusetts at Amherst
at the Conference of the American Society of Chemistry held in Florida in recent days. To lead the group there is Trisha Andrew, associate professor of chemistry and chemical engineering at the American academic Pole, who explained in detail what this new patent will consist of.
In Essence, The fabrics used for this pajamas will be accompanied by superlight microchips, placed on the garment buttons. In real time and without disturbing the movement, they will manage to constantly monitor the heartbeat, the breathing, the correct posture during sleep and so on. The results will promote the care of stress, cardio-circulatory disorders or infectious or very widespread diseases such as diabetes. The first tests, carried out on volunteers, have given a clearly positive outcome, so that the patent application, in progress, has already been deposited. Although there is still a lot of work to be done, within two years, according to Andrew, it may already be affordable.
“Many wearable biosensors- explained the researcher -Data transmitters and similar technological advances for personalized health monitoring have now been creatively miniaturised. But they still require a lot of energy and the energy sources can be bulky and heavy. These are light and easily wearable sensors that do not change the comfort sensation of your pajamas – Concludes Andrew- Sleep helps protect your body from stress, infection and disease such as diabetes or heart and circulatory disorders. Thanks to these sensors we will collect many useful information to improve the quality of sleep “.
