To conveniently measure body water at home, we are developing a sensor, called Heart Health Clothes (H2C), that is made from textiles; thus can be embedded inside patients’ clothes or wearables such as watches or patches. H2C is easy for patients to use without assistance at home, and for care-providers to use in a point of care fashion. Unlike other at-home monitoring devices, this new technology provides a fully integrated system that requires no more work than putting on a piece of clothing. H2C improves patient’s quality of life and involves them actively in their treatment, which increases adherence to care, and reduces readmissions rate and healthcare costs.
