The wearable technology market shows increased promise to help determine health factors and increase wellness; the 'Sweatbit' is the next-generation of things to come. The device was developed at the University of California, Berkley by researchers as a sensor that could be embedded into wearables to help determine health and/or ailments.
Everything from hydration levels, to what radicals are in perspiration could be captured by the 'Sweatbit' to help individuals and doctors help determine what can be improved. Professor Ali Javey is the development leader behind the 'Sweatbit' that could offer powerful connectivity for consumer and health products.
With innovations like the 'Sweatbit,' the healthcare industry could possibly eliminate blood tests in the future and instead determine problems by simply analyzing perspiration.
