Ladybug-sized implant tracks oxygen levels in deep body tissues

A new implant designed to track oxygen levels in deep body tissues is no bigger than a ladybug

Advances in electronics, sensor technology and wireless communications are converging to open up some exciting possibilities in monitoring the human body from the inside, from sensors that track the status of orthopedic implants to gas-detecting devices that dissolve once their job is done. Engineers at the University of California (UC), Berkeley have demonstrated a new form of this technology that can be used to detect oxygen levels in deep tissues, with hopes it could become a tool to track the health of transplanted organs, among other applications.
