Trends in wearable technologies: Towards the Star Trek tricorder

03/06/2020 @ 12:00 pm

Dr Ali Yetisen is a Senior Lecturer and an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. In this interactive webinar, he will illustrate a plethora of current and future wearable sensor technologies, and help you sort fact from fiction.

Wearables as medical technologies are becoming an integral part of personal analytics, measuring physical status, recording physiological parameters, or informing schedules for medication.

Dr Yetisen will discuss consumer trends in wearable electronics, commercial and emerging devices, and fabrication methods. He will also review real-time monitoring of vital signs using biosensors, stimuli-responsive materials for drug delivery, and closed-loop theranostic systems, exploring future challenges in communication modes, energy management, displays, conformity, and data safety.

Chaired by David Taylor, Patient Lead of the RSM Digital Health Council and Vice-Chair of The Patients Association, join us for this interactive webinar, with plenty of opportunities to pose your questions to Dr Ali Yetisen.

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
