Wearable technologies
for human health monitoring

The next step in continuous human health monitoring.

The combination of iFeel wearable devices combined with the power of iFeel algorithms gave birth to a stunning new technology: whole-body wearable technology, for real-time fatigue analysis to prevent human musculoskeletal diseases by enhancing ergonomic user experience.

Think of a suit equipped with iFeel wearable devices, sensorized shoes and flexible. The output is transferred to the iFeel AI algorithm, which is able to: 

  • track human motions 
  • analyse the fatigue in the back-end 
  • provide the user with feedback through the interface

The iFeel technology is a spinoff of the Artificial and Mechanical Intelligence Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). 

It as born within the frame of the Horizon 2020 EU project called An.Dy.

It aims to improve people’s lives through wearables, providing enhanced measurement tools for the challenges of the future.


We successfully use iFeel technology to teleoperate iCub3, giving humans the ability to exist elsewhere via humanoid robot avatars.


Our iFeel technology is composed of different elements. 

The nodes are empowered with AI algorithms for human whole-body biomechanical estimation, and they collect motion tracking and kinematic data. 
They are tiny, and we can easily insert them into our wearable devices.

"They are small sensors that collect motion tracking and kinematic data."


Full-body suit

Our full-body suit is equipped with biometric and motion sensors and a set of actuators for haptic feedback. 

It features a total of 10 sensors, 6 in the upper body and 4 in the lower body. We are working on adapting this system to work with clothing.

The shoes are sensorized, acting as portable force platforms. It features a node and 2 force/torque sensors per shoe.

The ultra-thin sensorized insole collects pressure distribution data.

Inside the human wearables devices there are a set of haptic trasducers integrated. They provide a haptic feedback to allow the user to feel the touch on the skin.
