Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 4 participants
Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Pilot Study of a Wearable Sweat Sensor for Hydration Monitoring of Athletes
Actual Study Start Date : July 15, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 1, 2021
Actual Study Completion Date : August 9, 2021

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Healthy adults
Healthy adults without a history of medical or surgical problems
Device: Application of a soft patch composed of medical-grade silicone that collects sweat during a subject's natural behaviors.
This device contains sweat sensors embedded in an elastomer and is applied to the skin with a medical grade adhesive.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adhesion of device underwater [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Percentage of devices which remain adhered during >1 hr swim trials


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correlation between local and global sweat loss [ Time Frame: 2 hours ]
    Percentage agreement of local sweat rate with body weight loss
