Back in 2017, Samsung applied for the patent for an ‘Electronic apparatus and method of controlling the same’ at the WIPO office.
It was approved in Jan 24th, 2019 and details the Smart Shirt from Samsung and its functions.
The shirt is equipped with sensors that can detect the lung sounds, and diagnose diseases at early stages, some might even say it is a life-saving technology!
It also uses prior data like the person’s age, gender, length, and medical history, to give close to an accurate diagnosis.
