Researchers at Wichita State University have received a grant from NASA to develop a biomedical sensor that attaches to the body.
The wearable device is called a smart skin biomedical sensor. It looks like a rectangular copper sticker with geometric patterns.
Based on their early work , a group of student and faculty researchers at WSU received a $1.1 million grant from NASA to continue developing the sensor. It measures things like blood flow, blood gas levels and muscle degeneration—all without batteries or electrical components.
