Mobile Wireless System with Nanopotentiostat Monitors Health of Elderly People in their Homes

Mobile Wireless System with Nanopotentiostat Monitors Health of Elderly People in their Homes

Fraunhofer FIT demonstrates a mobile wireless system that monitors the health of elderly people in their own homes, using miniature sensors. Besides non-invasive sensors this platform integrates technology to take a blood sample and to determine specific markers in the patient's blood. At its core is the home unit, a compact device located in the patient's home. It incorporates the necessary software as well as sensors and the analytical equipment. Visit us at MEDICA, November 12 – 15, 2014, Hall 10, booth G05. [More]

Nanosensor Measures Experience of Sensation of Dryness in Wine

Nanosensor Measures Experience of Sensation of Dryness in Wine

One sip of a perfectly poured glass of wine leads to an explosion of flavours in your mouth. Researchers at Aarhus University, Denmark, have now developed a nanosensor that can mimic what happens in your mouth when you drink wine. The sensor measures how you experience the sensation of dryness in the wine. [More]
