USA - Skin Patch to Monitor Health

Arno Froese

Scientists have developed a new skin patch that can provide all-in-one health monitoring capabilities.

The thin, flexible patch, worn on the neck, can track the wearer’s heart rate and blood pressure, as well as glucose levels. 

The technology, described in the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering, can even measure the amount of lactate, alcohol or caffeine in the wearer’s blood.

“This type of wearable would be very helpful for people with underlying medical conditions to monitor their own health on a regular basis,” co-first author of the study Lu Yin said in a news release. 

“We can collect so much information with this one wearable and do so in a non-invasive way, without causing discomfort or interruptions to daily activity,” said Joseph Wang, a professor of nano-engineering at UCSD.

“We are fortunate to have this great collaboration between our lab and Professor Wang’s lab. It has been so fun working together with them on this project,” said Lin, also nano-engineering doctoral student at UCSD.

Arno's Commentary

With each new invention, we are coming closer to the finality of instituting total control. 

No one can argue the benefits of such “skin patches,” particularly for those who have underlying medical conditions. Doubtless, it could save lives—actually, it only extends life, or we may call it postponing death. Nevertheless, the advantages are undeniable, and will provide the impetus to continue the quest for the final identification system—which we as Bible believers know is the mark of the beast.
