Inventions for Pets

Vet Care - First Ever Wearable Device Monitors Animal Health Through Their Fur

Groomers see pets with vet shaved spots through their fur all the time. Looks like instances like that will be fewer. 

Researchers from Imperial College London have invented a first-of-its-kind health tracking sensor for pets and people that can monitor vital signs through fur or clothing.

The new type of sensor, which can detect vital signs like heart and breathing rates through fur—and as many as four layers of clothing—could help make everyday wearables for pets and livestock a reality.

Such devices could help owners keep track of their pets’ health, and help vets monitor animals during surgery without the need for shaving. Want to learn more about this wonderful invention? CLICK HERE
