In this work a robust, non-invasive and wearable
micro-fluidic system was developed and employed to analyse pH
of sweat in real time during exercise. The device is incorporated
in an optical detection platform designed to provide real-time
information on sweat composition. The device has been tested by
monitoring the pH of sweat during 55 minutes of cycling activity.
During these trials, the data obtained by the micro-fluidic system
was compared to pH measurements obtained in parallel studies
with a conventional electrochemical sensor.
