Abstract: Recently, the healthy industry is interested in more innovative portable devices for healthcare with ubiquitous computing environment. There are integrated medicine, advanced high-tech smart devices, electronics technology, and other research areas. For these issues, we aimed to develop the ubiquitous computing Smart Healthcare Clothing System (SHCS) using Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) for the hypertensive. Wearable smart technologies will give the wearable functional industry a high-tech value of making healthy and anywhere-anytime comfortable life. Hypertension is a typical chronic disease stressful life. TENS is especially the effective rehabilitation and preventive treatment healthcare device for the hypertensive. We designed SHCS with TENS which was embedded in glove with four textile-based electrodes, and instructed by oriental medical ergonomics. This research was conducted the healthcare performance and wear comfort of SHCS by clinical experiment. The results of effect analysis of care performances were as follows: 1) the mean of subject’s blood pressure was decreased to the lower ranges after wearing the SHCS with tens in the systolic pressure (p1<.001, as the paired t-test using statistical analysis method SAS 9.1). We could suggest SHCS with TENS that is easy-to-use, and effective rehabilitation and preventive treatment healthcare device for the hypertensive.
