(The Gist of Science Reporter) BodyNET


  • BodyNET, a wearable technology developed by engineers of Stanford University Can detect physiological signals arising from the skin with the help of sensors that stick like band-aids and then wirelessly beam health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing. Researchers stuck sensors to the wrist and abdomen of the test subject to examine the changes in a person's pulse and respiration by observing the stretching and contraction of skin with each heartbeat or breath. Simultaneously, stickers on the person’s elbows and knees are used to track arm and leg motions by gauging the minute tightening or relaxation of the skin each time when the corresponding muscle is flexed. BodyNet will first be used in the medical field in diagnosing patients with sleep disorders or heart conditions
