Researchers Developed A Wearable Sensor That Can Detect Infections Like COVID-19 And Influenza Through Human Sweat

Moreover, the technology can be used by virtually anyone. Since it utilizes passive sweat, the wearer does not have to engage in strenuous physical activity to gauge an accurate read.

Instead, a removable strip collects sweat on a daily basis to provide real-time, round-the-clock monitoring. This makes the wearable sensor accessible to all age groups and ability levels.

Now, the researchers are planning to test their sensor in clinical trials focusing on patients with respiratory infections.

“We have built a technology to unlock and explore the latest frontier in sweat diagnostics,” Dr. Prasad said.
