Hospital stays aren’t fun no matter what, but the constant poking and prodding can be some of the worst offenders.  Researchers from la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid [1] have developed an “intelligent T-shirt” [2] that can make these a little less necessary by non invasively monitoring vital signs in real time, all the while saving time for the hospital staff. Interested in seeing how it works?  Click ahead [3] to learn more and watch a video explaining the technology.
