The chapter provides an overview of smart clothing for health monitoring and healthcare, mainly for rehabilitation context. We present recent advances in the field of researches related smart clothes with capability of human body vital functions (i.e. heart beats, respiration) and activity monitoring, as well as several commercial smart clothes for rehabilitation context. Technical and technological issues related smart clothes design and development, and several directions for future research are also presented. Manufacturability, connectivity, integrations of things for smart clothing, durability, testing, wearability, maintainability and affordability of smart clothes are discussed.
