Abstract: The world is becoming more and more quothealth consciousquot and the need for the newlineimprovement of the quality of the health care in medicine is necessary. Textile is playing a great newlinerole in the development of monitoring systems for health care safety. In electro-textiles, new newlinetechniques such as using conductive yarns have been developed to provide an innovative soft newlinetextile interfaces that are highly acceptable to the end user in this present world. Conductive newlineyarns play a vital role in the production of these types of textiles and garments. They enable the newlinecollection, storage and transformation of signals received from on source, may be human body, newlineanimals or any object and convert it into digital forms which could be noted for further action. newlineAny metallic substance which is capable of transforming electrical charges could be used as newlineconductive yarns. Considering these aspects, designing a smart wearable garments with newlineconductive yarns for transforming electrical charges has been taken up as a research work. At newlinethe very outset the current scenario of smart textiles and its awareness was identified through a newlinequestionnaire were given to the young mothers with infants when they came to the newlineclinics/hospitals with their wards for regular check up. Aluminum, copper and silver yarns were newlinetwisted separately with cotton yarn to form respective conductive yarns. These yarns were newlinefurther used as weft yarns and woven in respective fabrics with variations in the width of the newlinecotton and conductive yarns. Knitting was also carried out using the conductive yarns. The newlinephysical properties of the yarns and conductive fabrics were evaluated and analyzed statically. newlineIn order to study the possibility of the transforming these fabrics into smart wearable garments newlinethey were connected to commercially available LM35 body temperature sensor and pulse rate newlinesensor were selected to monitor the vital signs. A block diagram of electronic module was newlinedesigned for data processing and wireless transmission of the processed data.
