    The project aims to develop a wireless, non-invasive and easy to wear sweat monitoring device. The analytes in sweat like glucose, Sodium and Potassium ions will be detected using techniques like ion
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our project mainly focuses on making of wearable device that can be used by athletes to monitor their body vitals and can be used by doctors to diagnose diseases in hospitals. Most of body vitals for instance glucose level is found using body fluids like blood or urine etc. which is not a convenient
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Sweat diagnostics is an emerging non-invasive technique used to provide insights to the health of the human body. Common sweat diagnostic tests include testing for cystic fibrosis and illicit drugs. Our device Sweat-Med will be helpful for people who are either sports person or people who undertake
How will the solution works
    The device will consist of a patch that contains our sensors . The sensor will detect sweat from the skin. It will flow through fluidic tubes to the electrodes on the patch and from there we will get the concentration of the analyte. The data will be sent to the microcontroller which will wirelessly transmit it to the mobile device. The application on the device will then give the result after performing Machine Learning on the data collected.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    he device we are making is not currently available for commercial use. Although research on this concept is going on in different parts of the world. All the available medical diagnostics devices use conventional ways. We are introducing the new and convenient way to make the process easy.
