HOLDS THE SWEAT SENSOR CAN TRACK YOUR HEALTH
#Cosmoread: Blood test for doctors to analyze the health of the human body allow for peer. Look for signs of disease using human sweat wearable heart tracker sensors: But in the future, receive important information about the health of a person to be a less aggressive way.
Sweat doctors to determine what is happening inside the human body that could help the chemical is a rich source of data, the scientists noted in a new study. Sweat more complex than simple electrically charged ions with molecules loaded with proteins, and doctors, to highlight certain illnesses, drug use and sweat can use to optimize athletic performance.
And in it is a lot of information about one’s health – – If you do not have to sweat to get the body to attack it, of course, much easier to analyze noninvasive, wearable sensors are very attractive to the target, “the study’s senior author Ali Javey, California, an electrical engineer at the University of Berkeley said.
Commercially available wearable heart tracker sensors, Fitbit and watch as Apple, users’ physical activity and heart rate such as some vital signs, track. However, at a molecular level do not provide data about the user’s health. Now scientists using Bluetooth to smartphones can sync data wirelessly in real time with sweat sensors embedded “smart” wristbands and head says.
Previously, studies of sweat substantially later in a laboratory analysis were collected from the container body sweat trusted. Now, researchers continuously monitor changes in sweat four molecular components and to provide real-time tracking of a person’s health, a soft, flexible, wearable heart tracker sensor array is devised.
These tools help athletes in a day and continuously monitor their performance to better personalize their medical doctors to monitor the health of their patients might be able to, scientists said.
“It can be fluid or they are going through heat shock tell them to warn athletes might help,” Javey told Live Science.
An invention with glucose, lactate, sodium and potassium, as well as to track the level of skin temperature heart tracker sensor uses five. This data processes these signals and wireless transmit the data to a smartphone that uses Bluetooth microchips is fed to a flexible board.
All of these electronics in either a wristband or headband can be included.
“We sweat in real time is a smartphone app that plots the data,” Javey said.
Researchers pedaled stationary bike indoors or outdoors ran on tracks and trails, which tested the device on 26 men and women. Sodium and potassium in sweat such as dehydration and muscle cramps can help check for problems. Glucose in blood glucose levels can help keep track of. Lactate levels indicate blood flow problems, and skin temperature overheating and other problems can reveal.
In addition, skin temperature heart tracker sensor to ensure they get proper readings chemical sensor helps to adjust, the researchers said. For example, people with high skin temperatures reality glucose are released in their sweat as it may seem, the electrical signals from glucose, increased.
Previous wearable monitors perspiration can produce misleading information, which at one time could only track a single molecule, the researchers said. Alone sensors showed a drop in the level of a molecule that molecule level is falling because of the sweat of a person, for example, it may not, but stopped sweating, but also because the heart tracker sensor skin or have been separated from the sensor is failing. The inclusion of a person of multiple sensors and sensor array as a whole, to help shed light on what is happening.
In the near future, the researchers will shrink the electronics of the device and the monitors are expected to increase in the number of molecules. Such molecules such recent Flint, Michigan in dangerously high levels in the water to show who made the news lead, as may include heavy metals, Javey noted.
In the long run, researchers with their device on several volunteers to conduct a large-scale study is expected. Data, the work of various molecules in sweat gathers researchers better athletic performance levels and understand what it means for human health could help, Javey said.
He is currently collaborating with someone to commercialize sensors are not, however, researchers have filed a patent on their work, Javey said.
