Textile sensors for sweat analysis

Textile sensors for sweat analysis

The direct functionalization of textile fibers allows to realize biochemical sensor that detect crucial analytes in human sweat. The idea is to have a completely wearable device technology that is able to give information on physiological state of the user without any invasive analysis. Important information in human sweat are related to dehydration and to saline loss. The detailed monitoring of these parameters could be helpful for sportsman to improve their performances, to avoid cramps and to control fatigue. Moreover, in everyday life a correct hydration is fundamental to improve health and wellbeing.
