1. An apparatus for monitoring human status parameters, comprising:

  • a housing having a skin interface surface for creating an insulated interface with a wearer'"'"'s skin;

    a skin temperature sensor that generates data indicative of a skin temperature of the wearer, said skin temperature sensor mounted within said housing and in thermal communication with said insulated interface;

    a temperature sensor mounted on a side of the housing away from the wearer'"'"'s skin that generates data indicative of a temperature condition within a garment of the wearer, said garment surrounding said housing; and

    a processor in electronic communication with said sensors for receiving said data indicative of the skin temperature of the wearer and said temperature condition within the garment and for generating a derived temperature-based parameter of the wearer.
