Wearable monitoring systems, realized by integrating a proper set of sensors and electrodes in form of fabric allows a friendly acquisition of vital signs. The health status of any user can be checked without any clinician support, just wearing a garment. In fact the sensors placement in the garment assures their right location on the body. The subject does not need to be supervised by skilled personnel during the setting of the system neither during the measurement; signals can remotely be analyzed (also in real-time, if needed) and interpreted to generate the proper feedback to the users. These systems are fully washable and comfortable and can be customized to increase sensing functionality, Moreover physiological objective information provided by these systems can be combined with many behavioral indexes that are generated when using the mobile technology. More and more in the future, we will ask for confirmations, advices, and help from the technology,
