Lab Spotlight: AFRL 711 HPW - Sweat Sensor

711 HPW Sweat Sensor High Res 1407338205

At the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) 711th Human Performance Wing (711 HPW), Dr. Josh Hagen and a team of researchers are working to develop skin "biosensors" that track what is flowing in the sweat of soldiers to monitor their health and improve their performance. The high tech devices, which look and feel like adhesive bandages, could be used to collect real-time measurements, such as heart rate, respiration rate and hydration.

The 711 HPW works to push the boundaries of peak human performance, and to help people function at their best and and to operate optimally in their environment. Its mission is to advance human performance in air, space and cyberspace through research, education and consultation.
