Sweat blood alcohol

Wearable Sensor Uses Sweat to Check Blood Alcohol Content

The findings of a new study confirm that sweat alcohol levels correlate with blood alcohol levels. For their study, US researchers used a wearable device that stimulates sweat production and measures its ethanol concentration every 25 seconds. In the future, the device could be used to track important analytes like hormones, or pharmaceuticals, to tell […]
Stress Sweat sensor

This Wearable Patch Detects Stress Hormone in Sweat

Stress affects us in numerous ways. Affecting blood pressure and metabolism to immune response and memory, stress can lead to the development of chronic diseases. Researchers are focusing on sweat as a way to detect stress levels. However, wearables that use sweat to detect stress normally track heart rate, temperature, and perspiration levels as markers […]
