Sensors Measure Biochemical Compounds

Swedish Scientists Develop Multi-Purpose Sensors for Measuring Biochemical Compounds in Blood and Sweat

Traditional wearable devices can monitor step count, heart rate, blood pressure and even blood glucose. However, these devices have limited functionality and have issues around accuracy, calibration and reliability. A team of scientists at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden want to change all that. So, they’ve developed multi-purpose electrochemical sensors to take […]
