The chapter presents some of the significant research done on the utilization of nanoparticles to fabricate and implement flexible wearable sensors for health monitoring applications. The involvement of nanoparticles has greatly influenced the operation of wearable sensors in terms of reduction in time and cost. The electrical, mechanical, and thermal advantages of nanoparticles have imparted the flexible sensors to be deployed for detection of multiple physiological parameters associated with human beings. Along with the processed materials, the fabrication technique, and the uses of some of the nanoparticles-based flexible wearable sensors, the challenges associated with the current sensors and some of the future opportunities are also depicted in this chapter.
