Sweating the Details

University of Cincinnati researchers have demonstrated that sweat works as well as blood for health monitoring by creating the world's first noninvasive device that can test sweat continuously and for hours. This innovation could contribute to continuous health monitoring with wearable devices, which provides data over time so that doctors can track health trends instead of relying on the snapshot that a single blood test provides.
