Forget Bulky Fitbits, This Scientist Wants To Create Medical Wearables So Thin You Forget About Them
Ana Claudia Arias is developing such products as a bandage-like sensor that could monitor a wound's healing process or one that could slip into a diabetic's shoe and warn about foot ulcers the person wouldn't be able to feel.
Electronics ‘Like A Second Skin’ Make Wearables More Practical And MRIs Safer For Kids
She’s a physicist who trained in the storied lab where Watson and Crick worked out the structure of DNA. In her years in industry, she made sharper displays for e-readers, more efficient solar panels, and sensor tape that soldiers could wear on the battlefield to measure the strength of explosions. Her manufacturing tool of choice: a simple printer. (McFarling, 11/15)
