  • chest band means for forming a compliant loop having a selected circumference such that when said chest band means is worn around the patient'"'"'s chest, substantially all of said chest band means elongates and produces a resilient tension, said chest band means formed of a gel-like core, and having a front portion and a back portion;

    shoulder band means for forming a compliant band having a first end connected to the back portion of said chest band means and a second end connected to the front portion of said chest band means, said shoulder band means having a selected length and being formed of a gel-like core, such that when said shoulder band means is worn over the patient'"'"'s shoulder and said chest band means is worn around the patient'"'"'s chest substantially all of said shoulder band means elongates and produces a resilient tension; and

    a plurality of sensor means for sensing at least one physiological parameter of the patient, wherein said sensor means are positioned on said chest and shoulder band means, and further wherein resilient tensioning provided by said chest and shoulder band means operates to maintain the sensor means in proper physical orientation with respect to the patient'"'"'s body for proper operation.
