Smart Sweatband Senses Dehydration

It’s not easy to tell if you’re dehydrated. Nearly 75 percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated, putting many people at a health risk.

Now, a smart sweatband could tell you when you exercise is bordering on dangerous. By measuring the chemicals in your sweat, this sensor can alert you of dangerous situations by linking to your smartphone in the first fully integrated electronic system that can provide continuous, noninvasive monitoring of multiple biochemical in perspiration.

The device has the potential to measure more than perspiration, with goals of preforming population-level studies for medical applications.
