Many people wear or carry devices that monitor their steps, heart rate, and activity levels. Data collected from more complex biosensors can associate deviations from normal, even signaling disease states before the wearer feels sick. This multisponsored webinar by The Scientist will highlight advances in wearable devices that can monitor health data and the new modeling and data analysis tools that help researchers pull out meaningful information. The presentations will focus on the basics of materials, mechanics, and manufacturing for soft bioelectronics systems, and how wearable electronics can be applied for human healthcare, human-machine interfaces, and advanced therapeutics.

Topics to be covered

  • The potential for using wearables to predict illness
  • Smart and connected soft bioelectronics for advancing human healthcare and human-machine interfaces
