Although wearables have shown utility in many clinical-based studies, their transition to daily use is limited by their design-induced lack of integration to everyday clothing items. This chapter explores current flexible substrate sensors and their substrates, which have the potential to be developed into wearable items. We also discuss the barriers to entry for wearables in the fashion industry and how the gap between clothing and healthcare can and needs to be narrowed to facilitate widespread ease of use.
