Taiwan's Textile Industry Taps RFID

At the Taiwan Textile Research Institute exhibition on Sept. 8, RFID will be used for e-health, according to an article by Dan Nystedt of IDG News Service.

Sensors in clothing will be used to collect data such as a heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature. The information will be relayed via RFID to servers in hospitals where doctors can track the patients' health according to Nystedt.
