(273e) (Invited Talk) Wearable Health Sensors
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, November 9, 2021 - 9:00am to 9:30am
Monitoring sweat is a compelling choice to gain insight into a personâs health at the molecular level, as sweat is rich in physiological and metabolic information that can be obtained non-invasively. In spite of advances made towards the detection of biomarkers in sweat, there is no sensor capable of long-term detection in constricted or load-bearing applications where other flexible plastic sensors might cause discomfort. Textile-based and nanocomposite technologies, such as those developed at RooSense LLC, provide an optimum scaffold for monitoring biomarkers at the surface of the skin as they do not influence the sweat composition or sweat rate and can be seamlessly integrated for wearable sensing and translational medicine applications.
This presentation will focus on the development of a prototype wearable hydration monitor, validation of the prototype in the laboratory, on body testing in an exercise physiology laboratory.
