Note: The following articles plus the article by Strangman, Ivkovic, and Zhang (NASA section citation #3) are part of a topic series of "Emerging Wearable Physiological Sensing Technologies and Decision Aids for Health and Performance" published ahead of print in Journal of Applied Physiology. The goal, from the introductory article by Sawka and Friedl, is: "to provide a forward-looking analysis of recent advancements and possible applications, and the physiological/biomedical challenges that need to be resolved to achieve their full potential for a broad range of applied physiology problems. These mini-reviews and articles represent a range of applications for wearable physiological monitoring systems to identify adaptation and maladaptation, acute and chronic health issues, recovery in rehabilitation medicine, and decision support tools in performance monitoring."
