The Science Times: Sweat Patch Technology For Athletes Could Be Applied for Coronavirus Biomarker Research
Smart Design has partnered with Epicore Biosystems and Gatorade for our most recent ecosystem innovation work on the Gx Sweat Patch and App, which generates personalized sports nutrition recommendation so athletes can perform at their best. This digital ecosystem combines wearable technology that captures an athlete’s sweat rate and electrolyte concentration directly from the skin with a smartphone app that processes the data using machine learning, eliminating the need of a traditional lab.
We’re extremely pleased to see the Gx Sweat Patch technology being tested to meet the needs of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Researchers believe the sweat analysis made possible with the smart patch could provide important information to track health conditions.
