Abstract:

The rapid technological progression of smartphones, medical devices, fitness
-
activity
monitors, home healthcare devices, and bio
-
nanotechologies have enabled a complete transformation in
the way we develop physiol
ogical monitoring devices. No longer are vital signs and blood chemistries
limited to the doctor’s office, these can now be done at home or on the run, and tracked on your own
smartphone. This seminar will focus on complete physiological monitoring as it

pertains to both the Air
Force and consumer industry including key applications, near term vital sign device development, near
-
mid term paper biofluid diagnostics, mid
-
term wearable sweat diagnostics, and far
-
term ‘wearable
tricorder’. This is truly an e
xciting time in physiological monitoring with incredible opportunities for
technology advancement.
