1. An apparatus for detecting and reporting static and dynamic data relating to at least one of the human physiological and environmental condition, comprising:

  • at least one sensor for detecting at least one human conditional status data point when said apparatus is mounted on a human body, said at least one sensor being mounted within a rigid pod supported by a flexible section, said rigid pod and said flexible section adapted to be mounted within at least one defined, preselected space proximate to said human body such that said pod and said flexible section avoid interference with the motion and flexibility of said human body, said pod and said flexible section having a concave inner surface adapted to accept a generally convex exterior surface of said human body and a convex outer surface, said inner surface of said pod having an outer edge, at least a portion of said pod being radiussed at said outer edge of said inner surface;

    wrapping means coupled to said flexible section for maintaining contact between said pod and said human body;

    processing means in electrical communication with said at least one sensor for converting said at least one data point from said at least one sensor into at least one of human physiological and environmental status output data; and

    output means in electrical communication with said processing means for communicating said output data to a user.
