1. A system for detecting, monitoring and reporting human physiological information, comprising:

  • a sensor device adapted to be placed in contact with an individual'"'"'s upper arm, said sensor device including at least two of an accelerometer, a GSR sensor and a heat flux sensor, said sensor device being adapted to generate;

    (i) data indicative of at least two of motion, the resistance of said individual'"'"'s skin to electric current, and heat flow of said individual and (ii) derived data from at least a portion of said data indicative of at least two of motion, resistance of said individual'"'"'s skin to electric current and heat flow, said derived data comprising a physiological parameter of said individual that cannot be wholly measured directly by any one of said accelerometer, said GSR sensor and said heat flux sensor;

    a central monitoring unit remote from said sensor device adapted for the generation of analytical status data from at least a portion of at least one of;

    (i) said data indicative of at least two of motion, resistance of said in individual'"'"'s skin to electric current and heat flow, (ii) said derived data and (iii) said analytical status data, said central monitoring unit including a data storage device for retrievably storing at least one of;

    (i) said data indicative of at least two of motion, resistance of said individual'"'"'s skin to electric current and heat flow (ii) said derived data and (iii) said analytical status data;

    data transfer means for establishing at least temporary electronic communication between said sensor device and said central monitoring unit; and

    means for transmitting at least one of;

    (i) said data indicative of at least two of motion, resistance of said individual'"'"'s skin to electric current and heat flow, (ii) said derived data and (iii) said analytical status data to a recipient.
