Smartwatch tracks Medication Levels
- Researchers of UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, Los Angeles, California along with Stanford School of Medicine have developed a smartwatch that can trace drug levels inside the body.
- The smartwatch analyses the chemicals present in sweat. This wearable technology can be used to design an ideal drug and decide its dosages as per the requirements of an individual. According to the researchers, existing efforts to personalize the drug dosage rely profoundly on repeated blood draws at the hospital.
- These solutions are inconvenient, time-consuming, invasive and expensive. The related research is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
