How Innovative Researchers Are Using Apps and Wearables

Thursday, February 16, 2017 Posted by

Digital health tools have reached a notable prevalence in research studies and clinical trials. Universities, pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers are transitioning from evaluating these novel data capture tools to seriously incorporating mobile technology in their studies.

For example, Stanford recently launched a Center for Digital Health, and IBM and Pfizer have partnered to transform Parkinson’s treatment with wearables in Project Blue Sky.

The challenge is now to determine the best way to leverage apps and wearables and take advantage of the novel solutions they provide.

The Latest Wearable Tech: Flexible Microfluidic Devices

Thursday, January 26, 2017 Posted by

We’re excited to announce that MC10 co-founder John Rogers’ latest invention recently landed on the cover of the November 2016 issue of Science Translational Medicine.

Rogers, a pioneer in the field of soft bioelectronics, has created a novel epidermal microfluidic device which harvests and routes tiny droplets of sweat from skin pores for biochemical analysis. Researchers can now tap into rich information stored in sweat, including hormone levels, sodium, chloride, pH and stress indicators. Rogers et al. published their first demonstration of skin-worn epidermal microfluidics in Science Translational Medicine.

2017 Outlook: The Future of Wearables and Mobile Tech

Thursday, January 19, 2017 Posted by

It’s no secret that wearables and mobile technology are positioned for growth, but the numerous possible applications make it difficult to foresee what this growth will look like.

In 2016, we saw collaborations, partnerships, novel use cases and explorations. And MC10 is excited to see these new applications and partnerships continue to develop and strengthen in 2017 as wearable technology breaks out from initial concepts and feasibility studies to impact a wider audience and begin to approach its potential.

How Do the CTA Standards Impact Wearable Sleep Monitors?

Thursday, January 05, 2017 Posted by

Not only do over 40 million adults in the U.S. get less than the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night, but the quality of sleep they are getting isn’t all that great. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s 2014 Sleep Health Index™, 35 percent of Americans report their sleep quality as either ‘poor’ or ‘only fair’.

How Researchers Can Utilize Novel Wearable Sensor Technologies to Secure Research Funding

Thursday, December 29, 2016 Posted by


Achieving sustainable funding for academic and clinical research can be particularly challenging when introducing new disruptive approaches to disease management and prevention. 

Emerging classes of wearable technologies and telehealth systems have recently been deployed in clinical studies (The American Journal of Psychiatry, Health Affairs (1), Health Affairs (2), Telemed J E Health, Pediatric Annals), and have demonstrated the potential to redefine our understanding of disease management in the hospital, and ultimately, home environment

Here are four reasons that applying emerging wearable technologies and biosensing systems to your research will lead to funding, advancing the goal of building a strong foundation for digital medicine in the 21st century.

Why Wrist-Worn Wearables Are Not Enough

Wednesday, November 02, 2016 Posted by

Data Accuracy from Wrist-Worn Wearables does Not Make the Cut

It is apparent that wearables, and specifically, wrist-worn wearables, have swept the consumer market: the International Data Corporation reported vendor shipments of 78.1 million wearable device units in 2015, and Gartner predicts the sale of smartwatches alone to hit 50.4 million units in 2016. The fact that the top five wearable vendors specialize in wrist-worn devices doesn’t come as much of a shock, considering their profusion at places like the gym and the workplace.
