UCLA researchers have developed a disposable freestanding electrochemical sensing system (FESS) for strain-isolated sweat analysis that can be easily integrated with future wearable consumer electronics while preserving biomarker data fidelity. The FESS can be simultaneously adhered to skin and electronics with the aid of double-sided adhesion forces without the need for rigid connectors, allowing for efficient biomarker information delivery despite movement. The FESS was able to be seamlessly integrated into a smartwatch and provide robust biomarker readouts throughout the user’s various activities, demonstrating the ease with which it can be integrated with consumer electronics.

Abstract

UCLA researchers in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering have developed a highly sensitive, wearable hormone monitoring platform.
