Seat to monitor heart health

In another step forward toward health monitoring cars, I suggest developing a driver's seat that will take ECG readings through sensors able to take readings even through a fine layer of clothing.
The sensors will be able to detect electrical current at a short distance, without needed direct contact. The seat will be able to produce accurate readings 98% of the time for 95% of drivers.
Some possible applications for the smart seat will include warning the driver to pull over if a heart abnormality is detected, more constant heart monitoring for heart patients, and as a sort of 'black box', which will alert emergency responders to the heart condition of the driver after an accident, as well as provide data on the state of the driver before and during the event.
