Joe Wang and Patrick Mercier of UCSD have developed a flexible, wearable, patch that monitors both biochemical and electric signals.
Most wearables only measure one parameter, such as steps or heart rate, and few measure chemical signals. The Chem-Phys patch records EKG signals, and tracks lactate levels, marking physical effort, in real time. It is worn on the chest and communicates wirelessly with a phone or computer. The system could help optimize athletic training, or continuously monitor heart patients, among other uses.
