Now with the help of a skin patch, blood pressure, diabetes and other ailments can be monitored. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, say the patch can also be used to monitor heart rate and glucose levels.
Researcher Lu Yin reported this. He said the patch is applied to the skin of the neck. It is stretchable. This patch can be useful for people who are suffering from an illness and need constant monitoring. Even now, the Corona epidemic has left people in constant need of medical advice. In this case, the patch can monitor patients who are away and send a report to the doctor. From this, the doctor can get an idea of the patient’s condition and the direction of his treatment. Pvt. Joseph Weng said that by combining several sensors, we have created a platform like this stamp. It has been given the appearance of a skin patch. It is easy to measure blood pressure from the neck area so it is applied to the neck. Skin patches have two types of sensors. The first is the blood pressure sensor and the second is the chemical sensor. After applying the patch on the neck, the body’s blood pressure is detected with the help of ultrasound wave. The chemical sensor monitors sweat and detects the levels of lactate, caffeine and alcohol in it. This single patch can handle a wide variety of medical devices.
