Title: PHYSICAL ACTIVITY SENSOR FOR CLOTHING
Abstract:
An article of clothing that can be worn by a user to sense activity. A first conductive fabric layer is positioned in a location of the article of clothing that is deformed when worn. A second conductive fabric layer is also positioned in the location of the article of clothing. A foam layer is positioned between the first and second conductive fabric layers, At least one conductive lead is coupled to at least one of the first or second conductive fabric layers. Application of a force at the location due to activity of the user causes a change in an electrical parameter of the conductive lead.
