Air Force partnership advancing wearable sensor technology
Imagine being able to monitor your health quickly, simply, painlessly, and continuously, without complicated equipment or a doctor visit. For athletes or people with health conditions, an immediate physical "status update" would be a great convenience. For the warfighter in the field, it could be the crucial element of a successful mission.
Skin-worn reader for continuous oxygen monitoring
A reader worn on the skin and working in conjunction with an injected hydrogel sensor for real-time oxygen monitoring in tissue.
Jelly implant keeps an eye on body oxygen levels
Although smaller than a grain of rice, a phosphorescent hydrogel implant that monitors tissue oxygen could end amputations in people with blocked blood vessels or help athletes design better training programmes. The first of these tiny but durable devices has survived more than four years - implanted in the foot of the researchers who created it.
Biosensors move to the point of care... and beyond
The glucose sensing industry will be a $12bn market by 2027, making up a large chunk of the $33bn market for biosensors expected in the same year. Wearable sensors today are making larger and larger market penetration, with more than 50 countries now offering glucose sensors free to the user.
Bandage oxygen reader for peripheral artery disease
Collaboration to develop an ultrathin flexible-patch reader worn on the skin for continuous wireless monitoring of tissue oxygen in patients undergoing treatment for peripheral artery disease has been awarded a $1.5 million grant.
Tissue-integrated biosensors for monitoring multiple body chemistries
Profusa, Inc has announced that it was awarded a $7.5 million dollar grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the U.S. Army Research Office to develop implantable biosensors for the simultaneous, continuous monitoring of multiple body chemistries.
