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.

A new wearable ultrasound patch that non-invasively monitors blood pressure in arteries deep beneath the skin could help people detect cardiovascular problems earlier on and with greater precision. In tests, the patch performed as well as some clinical methods to measure blood pressure. Applications include real-time, continuous monitoring of blood pressure changes in patients with heart or lung disease, as well as patients who are critically ill or undergoing surgery. The patch uses ultrasound, so it could potentially be used to non-invasively track other vital signs and physiological signals from places deep inside the body. Full Story
