Wearable Sweat Sensors on a Bandage

International Edu News

Researchers at IIT Bombay and the Tufts University of USA have developed thread-based sensors to detect changes in metabolite levels in sweat. It can be embedded on adhesive bandages and garments. This will be useful for people with chronic diseases to monitor their medical conditions constantly. Athletes also need to monitor all metabolites in real-time to check for hypoxia, dehydration and muscle fatigue. Such metabolic monitors need to be wearable and minimally invasive and should provide more information than a smart watch. The ions present in sweat present an overall picture of the body’s metabolic state. arable Sweat Sensors on a Bandage.
