Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body

Ultrasound patch monitors blood pressure deep inside body
A new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin could help people detect cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In tests, the patch performed as well as some clinical methods to measure blood pressure. Applications include real-time, continuous monitoring of blood pressure changes in patients with heart or lung disease, as well as patients who are critically ill or undergoing surgery.

Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics

Conductive mesh for implantable and wearable bioelectronics
A research team at the Center for Nanoparticle Research, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), has succeeded in developing a wearable and implantable device, that measures electrophysiological signals and applies electrical and thermal stimulations. It provides information on muscle and cardiac dysfunctions, and thus could be implemented for pain relief, rehabilitation, and prosthetic motor control.

Smart wristband could monitor environmental exposures

Smart wristband could monitor environmental exposures
Rutgers University–New Brunswick engineers have created a smart wristband with a wireless connection to smartphones that will enable a new wave of personal health and environmental monitoring devices. Their technology, which could be added to watches and other wearable devices that monitor heart rates and physical activity, is detailed in a study published in Microsystems & Nanoengineering.

A health check for the electronics industry

A health check for the electronics industry
As medical devices become smaller and more connected, Steve Rogerson looks at how the electronics industry is coping. Worldwide, the health industry is in the middle of a revolution that is seeing more and more people take control of their own well-being. Hospitals stretched beyond capacity are welcoming the move to patients being cared for in their own homes using remote monitoring equipment. Consumers are buying wearable devices that can measure activity and heart rhythm.

Engaging scenario simulation for life support training

Engaging scenario simulation for life support training
It’s safe to say that Virtual Reality (VR), has progressed well beyond being purely the next generation of gaming technology. As fun and enjoyable as that realm certainly is, with its infinite possibilities (anyone who has seen Ready Player One will know what I mean), the technology has now opened up to a host of other more practical applications.

Wearable device measures cortisol in sweat

Wearable device measures cortisol in sweat
The hormone cortisol rises and falls naturally throughout the day and can spike in response to stress but current methods for measuring cortisol levels require waiting several days for results from a lab. By the time a person learns the results of a cortisol test – which may inform treatment for certain medical conditions – it is likely different from the current level of cortisol.

Skin patches: the advantages of the ultimate wearable

Skin patches: the advantages of the ultimate wearable
Electronic skin patches deploy electronic components, including sensors and actuators with appropriate processing, energy storage and communication, directly onto the body, typically attached using an adhesive. Therefore, along with smart apparel and perhaps implantable devices, they serve as one of the most direct means to augment the user with technology.
