|Resumo(s):||Monitor athletes during exercise has always been a major challenge for engineers and researchers due to the restrictions involving the measurement of physiological and performance parameters. An athlete should have complete freedom to perform his normal activity, in order to be correctly monitored. The advent of e-textiles can give an important contribution to overcome these limitations since it is possible to integrate sensors in garments and thus perform monitoring without limiting the freedom of movements. This paper presents part of the work that is being carried out in the project entitled BIOSWIM, which envisions the development of an instrumented swimsuit, capable of acquiring several physiological and performance related signals with the purpose of aiding the trainer in improving the technical component of the swimmer and improve his performance. This paper will give an overview of the monitoring system and the textile sensors that were developed, namely for biopotential measurement.|
