UAE University’s research teams has developed a moisture monitor for the human skin

UAE University (UAEU) has disclosed that one of its research teams has constructed a moisture monitor for the human skin, which can be utilized without surgery to observe human health.

This step monitors the condition of the skin via remote sensing techniques, state news agency WAM mentioned.

Researcher Dr Najah Abu Ali, member of the Network Engineering Section of the Information Technology College at UAEU, stated that researchers utilized LED lamps and optical sensors that send light inside the human body at several wavelengths and monitors reflected radiation to construct a visual device that can be worn to monitor the moisture level of body tissue.

She mentioned that the device can be utilized while doing light physical activities and by children who are suffering from repeated vomiting or diarrhoea, and it can send data straight to the mobile phones of their parents to notify them regarding their children’s level of hydration.

It can even monitor the level of skin dryness and can monitor heart rate such as a smartwatch, she stated.

The project is expected to be finished by 2020 and will observe the participation of a scientific team from Queen Mary University in London, the University of Glasgow in Scotland and UAEU that incorporates specialists in the areas of electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, medicine, optics, bioscience,  modelling, computer science and interpretation of signals.
