Wearable Sweat Sensor Made from Microbial Nanocellulose

Publicado em 18 agosto 2020
Researchers in Brazil have developed a wearable sweat sensor made from microbial nanocellulose. The natural polymer provides a breathable interface with the underlying skin and allows sweat to travel through for electrochemical analysis using printed electrodes. The system can measure a wide variety of metabolites and biomarkers present in sweat, and could be useful for monitoring conditions such as diabetes. Wearable sensors are developing apace, and hold significant promise in monitoring [...]
