Abstract

We have applied passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), typically used for inventory management, to implement a novel knit fabric strain gauge assembly using conductive thread. As the fabric antenna is stretched, the strength of the received signal varies, yielding potential for wearable, wireless, powerless smart-garment devices based on small and inexpensive passive RFID technology. Knit fabric sensors and other RFID biosensors can enable comfortable, continuous monitoring of biofeedback, but requires an integrated framework consisting of antenna modeling and fabrication, signal processing and machine learning on the noisy wireless signal, secure HIPAA- compliant data storage, visualization and human factors, and integration with existing medical devices and electronic health records (EHR) systems. We present a multidisciplinary, end-to-end framework to study, model, develop, and deploy RFID-based biosensors.
