A Chicago native, John Rogers is a longtime friend of former President Barack Obama.
For pregnant women, fetal monitoring devices are a cumbersome array of wires and tape that require constant adjustment and, quite literally, tether the patient to a hospital bed. A team of researchers at Northwestern University is working to change that.
Worn 24/7, the soft, flexible sensor is being used to monitor cough, shortness of breath and fever in a small number of patients and front-line health care workers. Researchers hope the device can provide more insight about the coronavirus.
The future of medical monitoring is taking shape in a laboratory just north of Chicago. We learn about a new generation of flexible electronics.
Soft, flexible sensors developed by Northwestern University researchers measure an infant’s vital signs and allow physical bonding between baby and parent.
More than 1 million Americans live with brain shunts and the constant threat of their failure, which can be fatal. A new, noninvasive skin sensor can detect whether a shunt is working in minutes.
While inpatient settings help stroke victims recover, their progress tends to decline when they return home. Researchers are hoping that a new breed of wearable electronics could curb that drop-off in recovery.
Science catches up with science fiction as we revisit a conversation with Professor John Rogers, the inventor of epidermal electronics -- tiny, bendy computer chips that can be placed on or in the human body to monitor critical health data. Watch web extra videos.
