UT-Dallas Researchers Develop Wearable Sensor That Monitors Sweat for Alcohol And Glucose Levels

For Diabetes patients, traditional method of blood-based-glucose testing requires frequent finger pricking throughout the day, which is not liked by most patients. On the other hand, while blood alcohol content accurately measures a person’s alcohol consumption, it requires lengthy procedures and trained personnel to analyze samples. Now, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas […]
