A wearable hydration sensor
A healthy human body controls its water content to an amazing 1% precision. This makes sense when we think of ourselves as wet chemical machines. A new type of wristband monitor using Bluetooth-like waves can sense dangerous deviations from this norm in our growing population of elderly citizens, military personnel, and sports participants to name a few. This project initially targets medical use in the elderly for which there are 100 million potential users in the US and EU today, doubling by 2030.
