Wearable sensor clears path to long-term EKG, EMG monitoring

20 enero 2015

A new, wearable sensor that uses silver nanowires to monitor electrophysiological signals, such as electrocardiographyor electromyography, has been developed by researchers. The new sensor is as accurate as the ‘wet electrode’ sensors used in hospitals, but can be used for long-term monitoring and is more accurate than existing sensors when a patient is moving.
