The technological advancements are making everything digital and portable; hence, the importance of wearable electronics has also increased rapidly. In the modern world, everything is on fingertips and people are busy, making them unable to keep track of their medical health. Hence, the demand of the wearable electronics industry is increasing every day. This paper describes wearable electronics that can be used to keep track of various body parameters and individual location, and also transfer sensor data wirelessly to a remote location. The communication is established between the individual and authorities via a global system for mobiles (GSM) modem. Any abnormalities in the readings of body area sensor networks acts as a trigger for the GSM to establish the connection between the individual and base unit and send current location and health status to the authorities at the receiver end. The system also includes a SoS system, which alerts in case any abnormal readings are detected. Monitoring the sensor data remotely helps in notifying the required authorities and individuals in case of any emergency, because it has the facility of tracking the live location. This system helps in providing a quick response to stabilize a health condition. Finally, the system helps in transforming the future of healthcare to the next step, which is aimed for the betterment of human life.
