Determine the type of wearable biosensors that can be bought on the market, their uses, and the cost. The information will be used to determine the types of biosensors that can be used to monitor the health and safety of workers.

Summary of Findings
Our one hour of research provided the types of wearable biosensors that can be bought on the market, their uses, and cost.
As there was no geographic focus provided, we are assuming a global focus. If a more targeted approach is desired, for example, the United States, this would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply.
