New Innovation: Intelligent innerwear for men that could save lives

A revolutionary men’s innerwear or underpants have been designed by a team of US scientists, which is not just comfortable to wear but may also save lives as well.

The technology and designed has been developed by nano-engineering Professor Joseph Wang from the University of California San Diego and his team. Although the ink used in this band consists of carbon electrodes, the method used to diagnose the important health signs is almost the same as the conventional screen-printing procedure.

This new technology marks new ventures in the field of intelligent textiles and is a part of the focus-shift in healthcare, from hospital-based treatment to home-based.

The project is being funded by the U.S. military will first benefit American soldiers.
