A tiny microsupercapacitor (MSC) that is as small as the width of a person's fingerprint and can be integrated directly with an electronic chip has been developed.
Wearables & Sensors
Wearables and sensors bring value to healthcare in terms of efficacy and efficiency in end to end delivery. We keep you up-to-date on all the ways wearables and sensors monitor vital information like heartrate, pulse and blood pressure and provide actionable information to optimize therapy for patients.
Scientists have shown how smart textiles can be produced in a comparatively easy way, thus opening up new use cases.
Researchers have built a low-cost multiplex test that can rapidly provide three different types of data on COVID-19.
Researchers have designed a wearable device that monitors sweat for biomarkers that could signal flare-ups of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Researchers have developed “electronic skin” sensors capable of mimicking the dynamic process of human motion.
Xsensio has been awarded CHF 1.8 million in EU funding to adapt its Lab-on-Skin sensing patches so that they can detect when a viral illness like the flu or COVID-19 is about to get worse.
Researchers have developed a microneedle patch for monitoring glucose levels using a paper sensor.
For the first time doctors have shown that measuring changes in 24-hour heart rate can reliably indicate whether or not someone is depressed.
