The apparatus comprises a pod which is worn within a proximity zone of the body such that the mobility and flexibility of the body are not deleteriously affected by the presence of the apparatus. The system permits the dynamic monitoring of human physiological and environmental status data without substantial interference in human motion and flexibility. Sensors and processors are mounted within said pod.
