Wearable Sensors on the Body Presented by Dr. Joseph Wang
February 8, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Dr. Joseph Wang, the most cited scientist in Engineering in the world since 1991, will present an overview of wearable sensors—devices that can continuously and non-invasively collect vital health information from a person’s body and provide this information in a timely fashion. This presentation will examine the current applications of these devices—how they are being used, how they are applied and what information they are able to provide for both the individual and their providers. For example, advanced wearable devices can be placed on the skin or in the mouth and have electrochemical biosensors designed to collect specific molecular information regarding metabolites, electrolytes and drugs. This biochemical information is currently being used to help manage such diseases as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. The presentation also will include a discussion about wrist-watch mobility trackers that enable the wearer to track blood pressure, heart rate and other vital information. Join us for this intriguing discussion on the future application and challenges of wearable devices and mobility trackers and their impact on health monitoring and disease management.
