Another Multi-Function Monitor on the Way

Another Multi-Function Monitor on the Way

Measuring steps and heart rate is so “last year.” With the significant portion of projected wearable Health Tech revenues forecast to come from health and medical applications, new devices must collect much more information — and with clinical grade...
Textiles to Pull Electricity from Thin Air

Textiles to Pull Electricity from Thin Air

The concept of a body network is an intriguing one. Autonomous sensors communicate wirelessly with each other and a central controller, collecting and relaying data on a variety of health and fitness metrics, watching for markers that might indicate injury or disease,...
Honeybees Wear Sensors, Too

Honeybees Wear Sensors, Too

Big Data solutions based on data from wearable devices are not just limited to humans. The technology has become so small and cost-effective that researchers in Australia have been using sensors to study honeybees. Bees are essential to the success of many of our...

  At the Dreamforce 2014 conference in San Francisco, Royal Philips announced a prototype product to help patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Developed in partnership with the Radboud University medical center in the Netherlands, the device is...
Single-Molecule Thick Sheets Produce Electricity

Single-Molecule Thick Sheets Produce Electricity

Those tiny black flecks in the photo above may not look like much, but they could be the key to a revolution in wearable Health Tech devices. What you see in this picture is are bits of single-layer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), and researchers at Columbia Engineering...
Head-Wearable Device Detects Diabetes Early

Head-Wearable Device Detects Diabetes Early

One of the problems with diabetes is that patients can develop autonomic neuropathy. This means that the nerves that control the automatic body systems — such as heart beats or digestion — become progressively impaired. The problem is that this can be...
