Standalone sweat sensor provides immediate readout

52409293258 2eb6a07ca0 oEngineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a thin, flexible and stretchable sweat sensor that can show the level of glucose, lactate, sodium or pH of sweat – at the press of a finger.

It is claimed to be the first standalone wearable device that allows the sensor to operate independently – without any wired or wireless connection to external devices – to directly visualise the result of the measurement.
