A safe, wearable soft sensor

A safe, wearable soft sensor

Children born prematurely often develop neuromotor and cognitive developmental disabilities. The best way to reduce the impacts of those disabilities is to catch them early through a series of cognitive and motor tests. But accurately measuring and recording the motor functions of small children is tricky.

E-textiles at CES 2019

Once again, CES 2019 displayed many examples of e-textile products throughout the exhibition floor. As ever, companies ranged from early stage start-ups scattered throughout "Eureka Park", through to some of the best known and longest established players with booths (generally in the Sands Expo). In this article, we will describe our overall impressions, followed by listing summaries of each of the companies that we visited and interviewed.

Wearable patch measures sweat in extreme environments

A research team has unveiled a thin and robust sweat sensor that is capable of monitoring hydration during exercise. The circular patch, with a width of just 30 mm, works underwater and in dry, arid environments - which makes it ideal for monitoring fluid loss during swimming, triathlons, ultramarathons and many other endurance sports.
