At UC San Diego, we are developing wearable sensor systems with real-time feedback that enable a wide range of new preventive-health, security and fitness applications.
We accelerate the pace of innovation in wearable sensor systems by tackling the toughest research challenges and technical bottlenecks. Our work to create a series of the world’s most advanced “lab on the body” systems is built around close collaborations between world-renowned faculty and students and our industry partners.

UC San Diego engineers have developed a wearable patch that could provide personalized cooling and heating at home, work, or on the go. The soft, stretchy patch cools or warms a user’s skin to a comfortable temperature and keeps it there as the ambient temperature changes. It is powered by a flexible, stretchable battery pack and can be embedded in clothing. Researchers say wearing it could help save energy on air conditioning and heating. Full Story
