HAIFA, ISRAEL and NEW YORK – Researchers from the Wolfson Faculty of Chemical Engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed an integrated system for early diagnosis of diseases using wearable monitors, according to a paper published in Advanced Materials. The system is able to continuously monitor physiological indicators without disturbing the user, can repair itself in the event of a tear or scratch and receives the energy required for operation from the wearer. “This system will not just continuously monitor physiological markers in the wearer,” said Hossam Haick, one of the researchers, in a statement. “It will also aid the long-term collection of extensive information that may be used for epidemiological studies.” Although the system’s components already exist, a platform that integrates them is still in development.
