Blood-Testing Subdermal Sensor Beams Health Metrics To Your Smart Device
Scientists at the EPFL Laboratory of Intelligent Systems in Switzerland have designed a wireless under the skin prototype implant, which can monitor cholesterol, blood sugar levels as well as the impact of medical treatments like chemotherapy using five built-in sensors. The sensor instantly beams your health metrics to smart devices over Bluetooth. Sensing minute changes in the bloodstream ahead of time, it can even predict heart attacks several hours before they happen. The device has already been tested on animals and researchers hope to begin testing on patients soon.
