Unobtrusive monitoring systems and wearable technologies are rapidly evolving and their use in healthcare, exercise activity monitoring, and performance assessment is promising. Wearable sensors and unobtrusive systems development have been fostered by a combination of advances in materials, fabrication techniques, electronic engineering, IoT technologies, wireless networks. Such systems may find application in the measurement of a range of physiological parameters and physical activity, in disparate scenarios and at different scopes.
