Life sciences transfer scientific findings into innovative technologies in order to improve our living conditions. Life sciences are regarded by many as one of the leading sciences of the future. They combine scientific, engineering and non-technical disciplines.
Close relations between biology and electrical and information technology play a key role in this context. Digital devices are revolutionizing healthcare as we know it. Portable fitness technology has now established itself in society. More and more users are using wearables to obtain information about their own health. One of the most exciting applications of wearable technology is portable biosensors. These small sensors are able to provide continuous physiological information through non-invasive methods. With these sensors, medical personnel can measure biochemical markers in bio-fluids such as sweat, blood, tears, saliva, etc. to track the patient's health status and allow doctors to provide better treatment. Doctors are now recognizing the benefits, as the wearables provide more information for diagnosis and therapy than an examination in the doctor's office. The wearable sensors are not only used in healthcare, but also by athletes, as they allow them to monitor their vital functions during training. Although the development of wearables is still a relatively new industry, it has a promising future.
