Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors

Medical electronics: Healthier with sensors
From quantum sensors to sensor pills that you swallow to soft sensors that can be printed on gummy bears: new sensor technologies will improve medical care. Sensors are now an integral part of modern medicine. They are used to monitor bodily functions as well as in diagnostics and treatment. They record bioacoustic signals, such as heart and lung sounds, biothermal signals like body temperature, and biochemical, bioelectrical, biomagnetic, biomechanical, and biooptical signals.
