Researchers design moisture-responsive workout suit
No sweat: MIT researchers have designed bioLogic, moisture-responsive activewear — a workout suit and running shoe — with ventilating flaps lined with humidity-sensing cells. The flaps open and close in response to an athlete’s sweating.
Researchers invent 'smart' thread that collects diagnostic data when sutured into tissue
Researchers led by Tufts University engineers for the first time have integrated nano-scale sensors, electronics and microfluidics into threads -- ranging from simple cotton to sophisticated synthetics -- that can be sutured through multiple layers of tissue to gather diagnostic data wirelessly.
