Smart Wristband With Wireless Link to Smartphones Could Monitor Health, Environmental Exposures

Rutgers engineers invent biosensor technology for wearable devices. Rutgers University–New Brunswick engineers have created a smart wristband with a wireless connection to smartphones that will enable a new wave of personal health and environmental monitoring devices. Their technology, which could be added to watches and other wearable devices that monitor heart rates and physical activity, is detailed in a study published online in Microsystems & Nanoengineering.

Professors Salim El Rouayheb and Yingying Chen have won a new NSF award for the project titled "Secure Distributed Coded Computations for IoT : An Information Theoretic and Network Approach." This is a three year $1.2M collaborative effort led by Rutgers University (Salim El Rouayheb, PI and Yingying Chen, Co-PI) with University of Illinois at Chicago. Rutgers' share of this award is $800,000.

Mehdi Javanmard receives DARPA Grant

Assistant Professor Mehdi Javanmard has won a new DARPA award for the project titled "Closing the Feedback Loop for Neural Stimulation-Based Therapeutics: Continuous Monitoring of Inflammatory Processes."

This is a 18 month $642,000 collaborative effort with UPenn led by Rutgers University. As part of this project, Mehdi and his team will fabricate in-vitro and quasi in-vivo wireless probes for continuously monitoring inflammatory processes in subjects undergoing stimulation of the peripheral nervous system for treating rheumatoid arthritis.

Congratulations Mehdi!
