Wearable sweat sensors on a bandage

Metabolism — or the processing and utilisation of energy resources to sustain life — results in a number of by-product molecules called metabolites. Medical practitioners measure the concentration of these molecules in body fluids such as blood, urine, sweat and saliva to test whether the body is functioning normally. While biannual check-ups suffice for the regular population, people with chronic diseases need to monitor their medical conditions constantly.
