Sweat powered wearables

Sweat Powered Wearable Devices May Hit The Market Very Soon

Wearables have been around for a few years but their popularity, especially in the form of smartwatches and fitness trackers, has taken off. For health and fitness tracking, these devices are becoming increasingly valuable. However, there’s one drawback; as wearables need battery to operate, they need regular recharging. Now, scientists are looking for natural ways […]
Sensor monitors vitamin C in sweat

This Wearable Sensor Helps Your Body Maintain Optimal Levels Of Vitamin C By Detecting...

Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients. Its benefits include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Vitamin C cannot be synthesized by our body, so it must be obtained through our food or via vitamin supplements. But how do you make sure that […]

Sweat sensors for autism

Sweat Sensors to Predict Behavioral Issues in Autistic Children

Children affected by autism can become unruly and aggressive, often without any warnings. For normal people, it’s very natural to sweat when they become stressed. Now, University of Missouri (MU) researchers are looking to monitor how much autistic teens sweat in order to better understand when behavioral issues, such as aggression, are likely to occur, […]
Stanford BodyNet flexible sensors

Stanford Scientists Develop Fully Flexible Wireless Sensors for Tracking Health

For monitoring health or conduct studies, flexible body-worn sensors are the best choice for wearable device developers. However, sensors currently available are bulky and require charging. Now, a group of engineers at Stanford have developed highly flexible sticker sensors that don’t have any on-board electronic chips or any other rigid components. These sensors are powered […]
