Abstract: Aging society leads to more demands on health care system. The study shows that cardiovascular diseases are the most common and threatening diseases to the elderly. Moreover, more and more elderly live alone recently. Therefore, a total solution for elderly home care leads the way. In this study, we develop smart clothes to record three lead electrocardiography (ECG). Our system consists of (1) the conductive fiber clothes with four electrodes to acquire physiological signals, (2) a gateway to digitize, process and upload raw data to the server, and (3) the service server to analyze data and make a health profile. The system had been applied to the elderly community to evaluate performance. The experiment results show the average accuracy of ECG data is 86.82%. Thirty-five volunteers (age > 65, 15 male and 20 female) feel the smart clothes comfortable and easy to use than the traditional medical device.
