Mizzou researchers have released a wearable health tracking device

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOV) — Mizzou researchers working at the NextGen Precision Health Institute have just released a wearable health tracking device.

The goal is long-term monitoring. The device is designed to be comfortable enough that you will forget to wear it.

Medical technology is in its early stages of development. The equipment is adjustable to diagnose various health issues and diseases. It can be worn by both healthy and sick people.

The research team received a $2.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health in December to help fund the research. The group continued to receive additional grants for each milestone over time.
