Fuelled by the rapid growth in physiological sensors, microfluidics, wireless communication capabilities, and developments in materials chemistry and rapid proto-typing/3D printing, new generations of wearable wireless and implantable body sensor technologies are emerging, driven by demand across a broad range of civilian and military applications. Of primary interest for this technology is personal health and healthcare applications, especially those requiring continuous monitoring of vital parameters of people suffering from chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and heart attacks. However, in spite of advances in wearable/wireless BSNs and implantable bio-sensors and monitoring devices, further progress is needed in system integration, sensor miniaturisation, long-term reliability, autonomous operation, context aware operation, and data transmission and signal processing, for BSNs to become a truly pervasive technology that is compliant with non-technical legal, regulatory and ethical constraints. This Symposium, that will share some Sessions with Symposium “Smart and Interactive Textiles”, aims at bringing together researchers and engineers of academia and industry from multiple disciplines to address and debate these technical and regulatory challenges.
