Wearable biosensors help wound healing process by mimicking skin

wearable-biosensor-for-healing-1-1(Wearable Technology) – Biosensors are devices that combine a biological component with a physiochemical detector to observe and analyze how a chemical substance reacts to the body. Despite great advancements, traditional biosensor still has limitations.

Researchers at Binghamton University have now developed a skin-inspired, open-mesh electromechanical sensor that is capable of monitoring lactate and oxygen on the skin, allowing for long-term, high-performance, real-time wound monitoring in users.

Synchronized PPG and ECG biosensor module targets mobile devices

ECG monitoring via mobileDesigners now have an easier way to deliver both photoplethysmogram (PPG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) measurements for health monitoring from a mobile, battery-powered device.

The MAX86150 from Maxim Integrated Products integrates internal LEDs, photodetectors and an ECG analog front-end (AFE) to provide highly accurate, FDA-certifiable PPG and ECG performance in compact, power-saving designs, including mobile phones, laptops, tablets and smart speakers.

MediaTek offers biosensor module for smartphones


Taiwanese chip-maker, MediaTek has announced the Sensio MT6381 module for smartphones. The biosensor module, according to MediaTek, “is a personal health companion in your pocket”.

The MediaTek Sensio module has one job or rather six when installed in a phone:
– Measure heart rate
– Measure heart rate variability
– Measure blood pressure
– Measure peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2)
– Record electrocardiography (ECG)
– Record Photoplethysmography (PPG)
