It would not be an exaggeration to say that there is at least one person in every household visiting hospitals at least once a year for cardiac-related matters or for assessing cardiac fitness. Heart rate moreover indicates much more than cardiac health, it is the essential gateway to monitor a person’s basic health which is why there is no doctor seen without a stethoscope. The monitoring of heart rate has become an essential part of the majority of people if not a norm.
This is why this amazing invention from the UCSD (University of California) comes as one of the most timely news in the medical history where keeping proper track of one’s heart rates comes as easy as pasting a sticker on their skin.
The Nanoengineering graduate students of the University of California are in the process of developing an ultrasonic sticker which is soft and delicate that will enable the monitoring deep and sensitive signals of the body and will then transmit that information into a digital device.
The student Chonge Wang played a major role in designing the ticker-reading sticker. He mentioned that it is still only a couple of years away from day-to-day use and believes it would have a very high potential for monitoring people’s health.
According to Wang, the next step would be to identify how to make this a wireless component as it is required to be connected to a computer as of now.
Once this has been developed, heart rate monitoring which once was achieved through a doctor visit would be an on the go process.
