Researchers have discovered a new law of physics that accounts for that accounts for elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) friction, which should advance a wide range of robotic technologies.
Engineers have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin.
Researchers from Penn State led two international collaborations to prototype a wireless, wearable transmitter while also improving the transmitter design process.
Researchers have designed a cellular device capable of detecting and processing biological signals outside the laboratory.
Nanoengineers have developed a "wearable microgrid" that harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics.
Researchers have developed the first wearable devices to precisely monitor jaundice, a yellowing of the skin caused by elevated bilirubin levels in the blood that can cause severe medical conditions in newborns.
The new device can continuously sense levels of virtually any protein or molecule in the blood. The researchers say it could be transformative for disease detection, patient monitoring and biomedical research.
A device could help scientists better understand the health benefits of outdoor lighting and lead to wearables that could nudge users to get more outdoor time.
