AFRL-led patches make ‘sense’ of sweat
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - A field tester at the U.S. Air Force Academy wears an Air Force Research Laboratory-developed sweat sensor during a ruck march as part of field testing of the AFRL-industry collaborative product. The next-generation wearable patch can measure select electrolyte levels present in human sweat and transmit this information wirelessly for scientific analysis. The patches will augment research on hydration with the goal of improving human performance in heat or high-stress conditions. (Courtesy photo/GE Global Research)
