Microneedle wearable continuously monitors glucose, lactate, alcohol

UCSD Professor Joe Wang and colleagues have created a multiple biomarker monitor in the form of a painless microneedle patch, which Wang calls a “complete lab on the skin.” Glucose, lactate and alcohol levels are monitored simultaneously, in real time. Microneedles enable the direct sample of interstitial fluid, which provides a similar measure of biochemical […]

Chest sensor detects worsening asthma, respiratory disease

The RESP Sensor from Strados labs received FDA clearance for early, remote detection of lung acoustic and ventilation pattern changes to predict worsening respiratory disease. Lung sounds associated with asthma, COPD, heart failure and infectious diseases including COVID-19 are detected. Frequency of wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and respiratory dynamics including rate and excursion are […]

Univ. of Reading study links Alzheimer’s disease to blood brain barrier damage

The “Lipid Invasion Model” argues that lipids entering the brain due to blood brain barrier damage is the determining cause of the Alzheimer’s Disease. The presence of excess lipids in the brain cells of Alzheimer’s patients is an element of Alois Alzheimer’s 1906 research, but little has been published about this connection since. The hypothesis, […]

Sensors monitor physiological variables post vaccine

Wearable sensors could improve clinical trials by enabling earlier identification of abnormal reactions. Currently, vaccine safety in clinical trials is primarily determined by participants’ subjective self-reporting. Dan Yamin, Yiftach Gepner, and Tel Aviv University colleagues used a chest patch sensor to monitor various health indicators in 160 participants, before and after receiving the Pfizer BioNTech […]
