In this chapter, we discuss the technological developments that have led to the clinical utility of smart wearable body sensors. Smart wearable sensors can enhance the physician-patient relationship, promote remote monitoring techniques, and their impact on healthcare management and expenditure. We explore how continuous health status monitoring can be achieved with the help of wireless sensors, wireless communication, microprocessors, and data processing algorithms. Furthermore, we also discuss the impact of using wearable sensor systems by infants and aged persons to alert parents/caretakers/clinicians. We also explore integrating smart wearable sensors and IoT to enhance the automatic monitoring and alerting systems for health care improvement.

Keywords: Alerting, Communication, Healthcare, Monitoring, Sensors, Vital parameters, Wearable, Wireless.
