Energy-efficient health patch to improve mobile health solutions

Energy-efficient health patch to improve mobile health solutions
At electronica, imec – Holst Centre (set up by imec and TNO), introduced their next gen health patch. The small form-factor comfortable to wear health patch has been optimised for low power consumption and is the first of its kind to track physical and cardiac activity, while monitoring bioelectrical impedance.

Transparent sensors for imaging the brain

Transparent sensors for imaging the brain
In 2014, when University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers announced in the journal Nature Communications that they had developed transparent sensors for use in imaging the brain, researchers around the world took notice. Then the requests came flooding in. “So many research groups started asking us for these devices that we couldn’t keep up,” says Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma, the Lynn H. Matthias Professor and Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor in electrical and computer engineering at UW–Madison.

Sweat-based sensor monitors glucose levels

Sweat-based sensor monitors glucose levels
Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas are trying to develop a wearable device that can monitor an individual's glucose level via perspiration on the skin. In a study recently published online in the journal Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, Dr. Shalini Prasad, professor of bioengineering in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, and her co-authors demonstrated the capabilities of a biosensor they designed to reliably detect and quantify glucose in human sweat.

Are you sitting comfortably?

Are you sitting comfortably?
A new kind of wearable. It doesn’t track your steps, or how many calories you’ve burned in a day. Nor does it analyse your sleep cycles and record your workouts. This wearable analyses something else, your posture. The UpRight is a posture trainer that does not only read your posture when sitting, but also rectifies it by providing real time biofeedback.

Nanosensors yield insight into tumour behaviour

Nanosensors yield insight into tumour behaviour
Once adapted for humans, this type of sensor could be used to determine how aggressive a tumour is and help doctors choose the best treatment, says Sangeeta Bhatia, the John and Dorothy Wilson Professor of Health Sciences and Technology and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a member of MIT’s Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.

Sensor technology could speed up blood test analysis

Sensor technology could speed up blood test analysis
Researchers at the University of York have developed a sensor that is capable of detecting multiple proteins and enzymes in a small volume of blood, which could significantly speed up diagnostic healthcare processes. Currently tests to detect the presence of infection or disease require a sample of blood from a patient, which is later analysed in a laboratory to detect markers of disease.

Scientists develop revolutionary heart attack sensor

Scientists develop revolutionary heart attack sensor
Cardiovascular diseases account for around 30% of adult deaths in the 30−70 year age group, which is greater than the combined deaths from all types of cancer. The ability to diagnose cardiac disease is therefore of utmost concern to doctors. When someone has a heart attack, certain chemicals are released into their bloodstream in elevated amounts, and blood tests are therefore the key to diagnosis.
