'Prescription Tattoos' to help diabetics

Post  capturetheworld on Fri Oct 29, 2010 2:04 pm

How cool is that! I really hope this technology comes into use some day:



Tattoos are no more just to beautify someone’s body or just way of expression. Scientists at Draper Laboratory have given tattoos another meaning. They will soon be prescribing semi-permanent medical tattoos a noninvasive way for diabetic people to keep tabs on their glucose levels. The “Prescription” Tattoos composed of nanoparticles when injected into the skin will respond to glucose in the bloodstream by fluorescing like DayGlo under infrared light thereby letting the diabetic patient to determine if an insulin shot is necessary. That’s sounds amazing for tattoos can be stroke of luck of many diabetic people.

Hmmm don't like tatts so pretty sure I won't be going down that route!

Could be pretty scary to others though seeing yr arm or shoulder (or butt?) start to glow in the dark!

great for Halloween I suppose Very Happy
