KAM Patch, the Smart Sweat Patch: a breakthrough platform for hydration monitoring

Project description

Wearable smart sweat patch for real-time hydration monitoring

Chronic dehydration affects the health and wellbeing of a large fraction of the world’s population and is associated with acute and long-term health risks. Vulnerable groups include children, older people, pregnant and breastfeeding women, athletes, and outdoor workers. The previously developed proprietary wearable device enables wireless hydration monitoring via sweat analysis in real-time. The latest generation of flexible electronics allows the embedding of the device into regular objects, such as patches or Band-Aids. The EU-funded KAM Patch project will continue with the refinement of the epidermal sweat patch. The goal is to develop an ergonomic patch prototype using flexible electronic components for better adaptation to regular human motion.
