Harnessing stomach acid to power tiny sensors

Harnessing stomach acid to power tiny sensors
Researchers at MIT and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have designed and demonstrated a small voltaic cell that is sustained by the acidic fluids in the stomach. The system can generate enough power to run small sensors or drug delivery devices that can reside in the gastrointestinal tract for extended periods of time. This type of power could offer a safer and lower-cost alternative to the traditional batteries now used to power such devices, the researchers say.

Wearable sensors can tell when you are getting ill

Wearable sensors can tell when you are getting ill
  Wearable sensors that monitor heart rate, activity, skin temperature and other variables can reveal a lot about what is going on inside a person, including the onset of infection, inflammation and even insulin resistance, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

3D antibody arrays offer better sensing

3D antibody arrays offer better sensing
Exploiting a process known as molecular self-assembly, MIT chemical engineers have built three-dimensional arrays of antibodies that could be used as sensors to diagnose diseases such as malaria or tuberculosis. These sensors, which contain up to 100 stacked layers of antibodies, offer much more sensitivity than existing antibody-based sensors, which have only a single layer of antibodies.

Digital sensor pen detects Parkinson's disease

Digital sensor pen detects Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic, as yet incurable neuro-degenerative disease. Early diagnosis is a matter of increasing urgency, particularly in the ageing European population as prompt detection improves patient outcomes. PD predominantly affects people over the age of 60 with an incidence of 5 out of 1000 people. Early onset of PD is characterised by movement disorders such as tremors, rigidity and slow movement that is later followed by behavioural and cognitive disorders.

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.
