    Abstract

    Low-power wearable sensing will soon allow the quantitative and continuous measurement of health parameters. In this paper we illustrate how wearable sensors can be used to track activity and energy expenditure, and measure stress. Soon such information may empower people in managing their own health, and provide the necessary data to enable a preventive approach to healthcare.
