Abstract: Until recent years most research involving the capture and analysis of biometric and/or physiological signals have been limited to a laboratory or otherwise controlled environment. Wearable technologies introduced a refinement to personal signal capturing by permitting a long-term onperson approach. Sensors, integrated circuits, textile integration and other elements are directly responsible for advancements in this area; however, in spite of the present progress there are still a number of obstacles to overcome for truly achieving seamless wearable monitoring technology (WMT). This article presents an overview of a generic monitoring systems architecture based on designs found in recent literature and commercially available solutions. A custom implementation based on commercially available components and evaluation boards is also presented, including some obtained data in varying body locations and/or activities.
