Sensors in the shirt capture data about the user, and transmit the data through a small battery-powered unit sewn discretely at the place of label.

The information is sent wirelessly to a smartphone, where an application charts it in a timeline and alerts people to potential physical problems.

According to Reveillon, the application can show if the user is tired, stressed, or even if a heart attack is coming.
