—Wearable sensors enable long term continuous psychological monitoring, which is important for the treatment and management of many chronic illnesses, such as neurological disorders and mental health issues. Examples include diabetes, problems with socials skills to some extent, empathy, communication, depression, drug addiction, and anxiety disorders. In the current paper we present a few mobile health technologies developed by our group and shall also discuss future market trends and opportunities for wearable sensor technology. Technologies presented include wearable sensors for electro-dermal activity (EDA), mobile plethysmography and the supporting wireless network architecture. The companies that are recently in the market and are putting great emphasis on wearable sensors are gradually changing the level of technology to a significant high level.
