A new wearable sensing system of respiration rate based on a piezoresistive FlexiForce sensor has been developed. The 3D casing of the system has been designed and printed with a 3D printer. The design of the casing has a direct impact on sensor accuracy. The casing was designed to house all elements of the sensing system in a compact way: microcontroller, battery, conditioning circuit, Bluetooth module and battery charger. The sensing system was validated with twenty-one subjects using a metronome as a reference.
