Wireless microsensors for minimally invasive health monitoring

Wireless microsensors for minimally invasive health monitoring

A research team led by Asst Prof John Ho has developed tiny implantable microsensors paired with a wireless reader that can monitor health information such as heart rhythms or blood glucose level in a minimally invasive manner.

The wireless reader is so sensitive that it is possible to use sensors at least 10 times smaller than the best implantable wireless cardiac sensors available in the market today.
