South Korean Researchers Develop Smart Contact Lens for Diagnosis And Treatment Of Diabetes

In 2019, approximately 463 million adults were living with diabetes globally, and there’s no cure for the disease. People with type I diabetes are insulin-dependent, which means they must take artificial insulin daily to stay alive. In type 2 diabetes, the body still makes insulin, but the cells in the body do not respond to […]

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 […]
