ABSTRACT: A The novelty of this study consists in the fact that, at the same time as the monitoring and acquisition of data of the air quality (from inside and outside), a monitoring and acquisition of data of the real-time biometric measurements of subjects exposed directly to the needle will be made. Medium by means of a bracelet attached to the subject's arm. This bracelet is designed to perform biometric measurements without creating discomfort to the subjects analyzed in the activities in which they are involved. This measurement is carried out with 9 different sensors for: pulse, oxygen in the blood, air flow (breathing), body temperature, electrocardiogram, galvanic skin response, blood pressure, the patient's position/movement, and the status of muscle (electromyography sensor). The data thus obtained will be focused on a PC and subsequently analyzed. The results of monitoring the health parameters of the subjects analyzed find application in the maritime field, to ships, especially in the engine room, where the air suffers quality transformations. The crew's return to the workplace may decrease due to the degradation of the air quality in the premises.
