Wearable sensors have received a major recent attention owing to their considerable promise
for monitoring the wearer’s health and wellness [1,2]. These devices have the potential to
continuously and non-invasively collect vital health information from a person’s body and
provide this information in a timely fashion. This presentation will discuss our recent efforts
toward filling the gaps toward obtaining biochemical information, beyond that given by
common wrist-watch mobility trackers. Such real-time molecular information is achieved using
advanced wearable electrochemical biosensors integrated directly on the epidermis or within
the mouth. The fabrication and applications of such wearable electrochemical sensors will be
described, along with their current status and future prospects and challenges.
