February 24, 2017
A University of Rhode Island (URI) biomedical engineering professor and his students are making great strides in solving that problem with their groundbreaking research. Kunal Mankodiya, director of URI’s Wearable Biosensing Laboratory, is researching how to transform gloves, socks, clothing and even shoes into high-tech items that will make people healthier—and improve their lives.
Mankodiya’s research focuses on smart textiles—wearable items embedded with sensors, electronics and software that can collect data from patients, even though they are at home, and deliver it to doctors. To read the full article, click here.
