Wireless sensors collect temperature and pressure of bedbound patients

An international team of researchers has developed wireless skin-like sensors for collecting temperature and pressure information from bedridden patients.

The researchers from the US, China and Korea described the small devices, which are about the size of a US cent coin, in the Science Translational Medicine journal and explained the advantages of their product compared to conventional sensors.rtphone experience.

They claim that the thin, soft, skin-like sensors are capable of precise, continuous measurements of physiological health and could have a broad relevance within clinical health care.
