Researchers have developed a microchip that can measure stress hormones in real time from a drop of blood.
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 captured the real-time electrical activity of a beating heart, using a sheet of graphene to record an optical image of the faint electric fields generated by the rhythmic firing of the heart's muscle cells.
Researchers show how printed wearable electronics offer the advantage of flexibility and low cost.
Researchers have developed a new low-cost method to help prevent life-threatening foot ulcers in diabetic patients
Researchers have developed a device using accelerometers and vibrators that can be worn on the fingertips like a thimble to help reduce 'postural sway' and improve balance amongst seniors
Scientists have used an implanted sensor to record the brain signals associated with handwriting, and used those signals to create text on a computer in real time.
People who compulsively pull their hair – suffering from an affliction known as trichotillomania – could find relief with a new device.
Scientists have found that a simple device can reduce swelling after kidney transplantation. Clinical trial shows shortened hospital stay for patients and reduced surgical site infections by almost 60 percent.
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.
