Wearable Sensors

Recent miniaturisation efforts in wireless technology have paved the way for the development of unobtrusive medical devices that can be included in the clothing or on the surface of the human body to provide 'always on' connectivity. These constantly connected devices can transmit information via base stations and smartphones directly to the patient or to a medical expert over the internet providing immediate diagnosis and feedback.

MediWiSe is currently developing a wearable non-invasive glucose sensing system that clips-on to the ear and transmits the patient's glucose levels. The device provides a 'set-it-and-forget-it' glucose monitoring method that helps diabetes patients to adjust their insulin intake in an efficient and hassle-free manner.
