The Dallas Express : Wearable Device Monitors Infection, COVID-19 Exposure

A fit bit-like device that monitors COVID-19 exposure through human sweat is on the horizon, thanks to a Dallas-based research company.

EnLiSense LLC is currently commercializing the device, which is worn as a wristwatch.

“If you are infected or if you are building towards an infection, then your body basically responds by producing immune biomarkers in the circulation just like how a glucose sensor works,” said Sriram MuthukumarEnLiSense CEO and co-founder. “In sweat, some of these markers are present and as soon as you see an elevation of those markers associated with infection, the sensor detects and reports it.”
