A wearable smart garment containing embedded sensors produces live data stream like electrocardiograph, respiratory rate, tidal volume and body temperature. Additional vital body parameters are necessary to assess the physiological state of a person especially for athletes, firefighters, combat personnel etc. This work shows the development of a graphical user interface software application for estimation of parameters like metabolic rate, heart rate, heat stress index, core body temperature, sweat rate and heat strain following standard physiological equations. The smart garment and the software application can be used for remotely monitoring the health status of a person and taking necessary actions when required.
