Wearable bio and chemical sensors (2014)

Abstract Chemical and biochemical sensors have experienced tremendous growth in the past decade due to advances in material chemistry combined with the emergence of digital communication technologies and wireless sensor networks (WSNs) [1]. The emergence of wearable chemical and biochemical sensors is a relatively new concept that poses unique challenges to the field of wearable sensing. This is because chemical sensors have a more complex mode of operation, compared to physical transducers, in that they must interact in some manner with specific molecular targets in the sample medium. To understand the challenges in developing wearable chemical and biochemical sensors the traits of these devices will be discussed in this introductory section. Following this the potential parameters of interest are presented and examples of wearable systems are discussed. A range of sampling techniques and methods of chemical sensing are presented along with integration issues and design challenges. Finally, some of the main application areas of this novel technology are discussed.
