What are the design needs of wearable devices for people with chronic conditions?

Eventually, such patients need to have a normal life. So the challenge is to design biocompatible materials that could be embedded in a non-invasive way on the human body, avoiding allergies and other kinds of complications. And at the same time keeping a good lifecycle. So these days we have observed some devices – stickers, tattoos and gadgets that can last embedded in the human body for weeks. And finally, they need to keep the measurement precision.
