Local 12: Engineers design patch that tells you about your health

Local 12 talked to recent University of Cincinnati graduate Mark Friedel about the next frontier of continuous health monitoring.

UC College of Engineering and Applied Science graduate Mark Friedel developed a prototype sensor that monitors chemicals found in the interstitial fluid just under your skin. The sensor uses tiny microneedles that pick up information about your health that can be tracked over time.
