Fast access to stored information is needed. As the medical treatment process requires doctors and nurses to move around within the hospital, there is a need for the information to be available wherever they are. Portable computers may be forgotten or be too difficult to carry. The aim is to solve these problems with a wearable computer system which will have appropriate speech-handling technology, such as speech recognition, and displays like see-through or flexible displays attached to the user’s clothing.

Always 3D devices, although some are very low profile in shape. Must be soldered onto a circuit board or flexible circuit. ) Circuit should be encapsulated or otherwise protected. Sensitive to static. Require a heat sink. 5W) can become hot enough to burn skin or ignite some fabrics. Fragile: deteriorate rapidly if not encapsulated.

The addition of nanoparticles to fibres can enhance their functionality significantly and this functionality depends on the choice of material, how it is made and how it is incorporated. There are four main routes for making nanoparticles. These are wet chemical, mechanical, form-in-place and gas phase synthesis. An example of the wet process is precipitation, of mechanical is grinding or milling, of form-in-place is vacuum deposition or spray coatings and of gas phase synthesis is plasma synthesis.
