Abstract

Imperceptible chronic recording of health status is vital to realize precision digital medicine to improve current diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Current sensing hardware is lacking such capabilities presenting a bottleneck for progress. In this chapter, we introduce wireless battery-free and highly miniaturized device platforms that enable chronic recording of vital signs, hemodynamics, and biomarkers that seamlessly integrate with current infrastructure such as smart phones. Operating principles, device technology, and sensing capabilities are examined with examples of commercialization demonstrating the impact of such devices.
