With devices that can continuously take so many precise measurements, Rogers naturally wants to take them beyond cosmetics, and apply them to a medical setting. “With these devices, you should be able to take full vital sign measurements continuously. Just a patch on your wrist could measure everything you might be interested in—blood pressure, blood oxygenation, heart rate, respiration rate, echocardiogram characterization, even brain waves,” Rogers says. “You could take all the large-scale clinical equipment in a hospital and collapse it all down into skin-like patches,” he says, which would enable doctors to continuously monitor patients even after they are discharged from the hospital. These innovations are happening simultaneously with the skincare applications, he says.
