Abstract— Wearable Biosensors enables real time analysis of biochemical fluids such as sweat, saliva and tears and
provides information about health conditions. As the name states, these sensors are worn on body, at wrist, in form of clothes, in mouth etc, thus termed as wearable and are used to sense various diseases, heart rate, pulse rate, body pressure, body temperature etc, thus termed as biosensor. The biological element detected by biosensors are antibodies, enzymes or nucleic acids. These biological elements interact with analyses to be tested and the response is then converted to electrical signals. The real time information is sent wire lessly to the monitors, laptops or smart phones. Wearable biosensors helps in early detection of health events and avoids hospitalization. These sensors are used to monitor a wide range of parameters as stated, for the health and fitness of individuals. Wearable biosensors have found advantage over other biosensors as these are easy to use, low cost, flexible, and sensitive. These wearable biosensors have found wide application in cardiac monitoring, diabetics monitoring, agriculture, bio-defense practices, environment, and drug delivery. In this research article, we discussed some of the research work done on wearable bio sensing technology and also some of the latest and modern wearable biosensors used in Health care monitoring.
