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 are analysing the use of context-sensitive data glasses in everyday clinical practice in cooperation with tooz technologies.
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 Fraunhofer Institutes project M³Infekt aims to develop a multi-modal, modular and mobile system of sensors for monitoring infectious diseases.
Researchers have developed a biobattery-powered device capable of both delivering large molecule pharmaceuticals across the skin barrier and extracting interstitial fluid for diagnostic purposes.
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.
Scientists have developed a soft and nonirritating microfluidic sensor for the real-time measurement of lactate concentration in sweat.
The patch, which can be folded around surgical tools, may someday be used in robotic surgery to repair tissues and organs.
