Tumor Size Tracking

Seems novel application.

Engineers Develop Wearable to Monitor Tumor Size

Stanford News

Andrew Myers, September 16, 2022

Stanford University engineers have designed a wearable device that can measure the size of tumors. The researchers say the battery-powered Flexible Autonomous Sensor measuring Tumors (FAST) device can monitor cancer drug effectiveness with great accuracy. FAST uses a stretchable and flexible sensor embedded with gold circuitry and linked to a small electronic backpack to measure strain on the polymer membrane. The device can wirelessly transmit this data to a smartphone application in real time, and the backpack allows potential therapies connected to tumor size regression to be quickly ruled out or accelerated for further investigation....
