A HEAP abstract presented at the EHEN Scientific Meeting 2023 in Leuven, Belgium. 

By capturing and analysing the bacteria, virus and fungi that surround us on a daily basis, wearable sensors could provide personalised predictions of how likely we are to develop certain diseases, or to provide insights to ways we could safeguard our health.

HEAP researcher Ville Pimenoff of Oulu University presented a wearable sensor, or “exposometer”, being trialled by 100 pregnant women from the Finnish Maternity Cohort over a four-month period.

By collecting and analysing data from the devices, the team are aiming to show that exposometers can be used for personalised exposure profiling by building an accurate picture of an individual’s chemical and biological surroundings.
