Wearable Nanowire Sensor to Monitor Patient’s Health

A new wearable sensor that uses silver nanowires to monitor electrophysiological signals like electrocardiography (EKG) or electromyography (EMG) has been developed by a team of researchers from North Carolina (NC) State University. The new sensor is as accurate as the “wet electrode” sensors used in hospitals. The sensors are also compatible with standard EKG- and EMG-reading devices. It can be ...
