Engineers have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin.
Scientists have developed and tested a wearable biofuel cell array that generates electric power from the lactate in the wearer's sweat, opening doors to electronic health monitoring powered by bodily fluids.
Researchers have developed a novel skin-mounted sticker that absorbs sweat and then changes color to provide an accurate, easy-to-read diagnosis of cystic fibrosis within minutes.
Researchers have developed a way to harvest energy from radio waves to power wearable devices.
Researchers have developed system for smart speakers to monitor both regular and irregular heartbeats without physical contact.
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.
Advances in wearable devices have enabled e-textiles, which fuse lightweight and comfortable textiles with smart electronics, and are garnering attention as the next-generation wearable technology.
The Fraunhofer Institutes project M³Infekt aims to develop a multi-modal, modular and mobile system of sensors for monitoring infectious diseases.
A subset of wearables are the so-called hearables – in-ear devices that are well suited for long-term monitoring as they are non-invasive, inconspicuous and easy to fasten.
A small, wearable heart monitor can detect atrial fibrillation in high-risk patients ten times more frequently than standard tests.
