Wearable sensors detect what’s in your sweat

2

A team of scientists is developing wearable skin sensors that can detect what’s in your sweat. In a new article, the team describes a sensor design that can be rapidly manufactured using a ”roll-to-roll” processing technique that essentially prints the sensors onto a sheet of plastic like words on a newspaper. The sensors can provide real-time measurements of sweat rate, and electrolytes and metabolites in sweat.
