The Role of Wireless Technologies in Shaping Digital Healthcare


Viral pandemics, exemplified by COVID-19, underscore the increasing importance of non-contact, remote patient monitoring via wireless medical devices. These systems collect medical health metrics and vitals, such as blood pressure, heartbeat, respiration rate, hydration levels and various biomarkers of different diseases from the user’s devices. Typically utilizing medical wearables and mobile applications, users transform their smartphones into portable laboratories for advanced diagnostics and continuous disease tracking. In this talk, I will discuss the wireless, flexible devices such as an implantable cardiac monitor, and different non-invasive platforms to improve the digital healthcare system, overcoming spatial-temporal gaps in current healthcare provision.

Shedding light on precision biosensing: from wearable bioelectronics to single-particle detection


Optical-based biosensing platforms have the potential to enhance our insights into personalized, real-time diagnostics. Wearable bioelectronics are essential in the development towards such patient-centered technologies, yet current limitations in biosensing also emphasize the need of understanding the fundamentals of biosensing on a single molecule level. In this talk, I will discuss our efforts in the development of soft, flexible wearable optical-based bioelectronics for the monitoring of cerebral hemodynamics on one of the most fragile patient populations: neonatal and pediatric patients. The discussion will then be followed by our work on an aptamer-based biosensor for the real-time, optical detection of endotoxin, a deadly pyrogen. We demonstrate the regeneration and reusability of the sensor suitable for repeated endotoxin measurement. The single molecule detection mode is enabled by dark field microscopy. These platforms have the potential to advance biomarker detection to safeguard the whole value chain: from healthcare products to the health of our patients for real-time detection and diagnostics.



Dr. Rwei is an assistant professor in TU Delft. She received her undergraduate and Ph.D. degrees at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), with her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering. Her Ph.D. training was conducted under the supervision of Professor Robert Langer at MIT and Professor Daniel Kohane at Harvard Medical School. She then proceeded to a postdoctoral position in Professor John Rogers’ lab at Northwestern University. She was the recipient of the Postdoctoral Fellowship Research Training Award (TL1) from the Clinical and Translational Science Awards

Program by NIH/NCATS. Her postdoctoral work pioneered the development of flexible, wearable biosensors designed to have a miniaturized size and mechanical softness suitable for fragile populations such as neonates and children. As a principle investigator in TU Delft, she aims to work at the interdisciplinary fields of precision medicine and chemical engineering, developing biomedical technologies in sensing and therapy for next-generation medicine. Her experience has yielded publications in high-impact journals including Nature Medicine, Nature Biomedical Engineering,

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and Science Advances.

Wearables for Continuous Hemodynamic Monitoring and Classification


Heart failure occurs in approximately 64 million people annually and is one of the leading causes of death globally. Characterized by periods of stability punctuated with life-threatening spells of instability, patients periodically travel to clinics for cardiac assessments. While vital, these visits incur extensive resources and only provide data during the time of evaluation. Wireless, non-invasive, monitoring devices (i.e. wearables) are gaining popularity with patients and clinicians for providing data in between hospital visits – allowing for improved insight and early, timely intervention. However, many of these devices are still limited to heart rate, pulse oximetry, and activity levels.

Here, we summarize our recent progress towards comprehensive cardiovascular monitoring and status classification by utilizing multiple, custom, time-synchronized wearables. Through wearable spectrometers and pulse arrival time models, we target independent correlates of hemodynamic function that not just estimate blood pressure, but also the regulatory mechanisms by which it is maintained or modulated. When applied to remote patient management, we posit that this will enable clinically actionable insights via the ability to classify and monitor types of heart failure and its progression in remote environments.
