Sensors have begun to revolutionize human health due to their ability to provide real time health monitoring under a diverse set of conditions. For example, sensors can provide real time information such as heart rate, blood pressure, biomolecular concentrations, glucose levels, motion and exercise data, neural activity, and so much more. While wearable sensors have seen an explosion in use, the reliability of such data collected has been questioned. Moreover, very little has advanced in terms of implantable sensors, yet implantable sensor can provide much more in depth and variety of health data compared to wearable sensors. Implantable sensors also have the capability to reverse adverse health affects, whereas wearable sensors do not.
This tutorial will provide an historical context for the use of wearable as well as implantable sensors in medicine, where the field has been and where it is going. It will also provide a few examples of FDA approved sensors in medicine and what is needed for the field to progress. Currently, there is an ongoing debate in industry on how such sensors should be regulated, in particular by the FDA or under the practice of medicine, under federal law or state law, and as medical devices, drugs or simply biologics.
Upon completing this course participants should have an understanding of:
- Fundamentals of sensors
- What is all the excitement about
- How to build sensors
