A new wearable patch would let diabetics track their glucose levels during exercise.

While exercise is important in maintaining good health, people with diabetes must watch their blood sugar levels carefully to make sure they stay in the safe range. To help make this easier, a team from Binghamton University has developed a paper patch able to measure glucose in sweat. According to the researchers, the flexible patch can monitor blood sugar levels using capillary action, without an external power source.
