FDA's Regulation of Implantable and Wearable Sensors: 2-Day In-Person Seminar


Sensors have begun to revolutionize human health due to their ability to provide real time health monitoring under a diverse set of conditions. For example, sensors can provide real time information such as heart rate, blood pressure, biomolecular concentrations, glucose levels, motion and exercise data, neural activity, and so much more. While wearable sensors have seen an explosion in use, the reliability of such data collected has been questioned. Moreover, very little has advanced in terms of implantable sensors, yet implantable sensor can provide much more in depth and variety of health data compared to wearable sensors. Implantable sensors also have the capability to reverse adverse health affects, whereas wearable sensors do not.
