The Sweati wearable will track glucose, lactate and hydration in small amounts of sweat and transmit the data wirelessly in real time.
Joining the ranks of hopeful, non-invasive glucose trackers, the flexible, disposable Sweati is made of fabric, which allows it to conform to the skin. Once in place, the patch measure even tiny amounts of sweat via its onboard microfluidics and chip technology, transmitting continuous glucose readings every ten seconds.
According to the team, this up-to-date analysis allows for real-time monitoring, and could be helpful for both atheltes—to avoid ‘hitting the wall’—as well as diabetics hoping to reduce needle pricks.
