Add-On Wearable Monitors Sweat

Add-On Wearable Monitors Sweat

Sweat, which contains a wide range of biochemical markers, can tell us a lot about our health. Variations in sweat pH can tell us whether our body is dehydrated and can aid the diagnosis of skin conditions such as dermatitis, acne and other skin infections. In diabetic patients, sweat pH may serve as a good indicator of other life-threatening conditions.

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing Cardiovascular Disease

Diagnosing CVD is the first step in patients' road to recovery. It is imperative to detect the disease early in order to administer treatment while it is still treatable. In addition, preventing the disease altogether is becoming more important in healthcare. The main approaches for detecting CVD are currently in vitro diagnostics (IVD) at point-of-care (POC) and the use artificial intelligence (AI) in cardiovascular imaging.
