Wearable sensor is a growing area in which real-time monitoring of an individual’s health status can be realized. Recently, skin-worn sensors capable of screening biomarkers in human body fluids have been developed. Since human sweat contains physiologically insightful information, it is a wonderful candidate for non-invasive health monitoring. In particular, sweat rate information is highly desired as it can provide a more complete picture for sweat analysis. Hence, the objective of this work is to develop a wearable sensor capable of monitoring sweat rate.
