Extracorporeal MSTEnhanced Devices

The area of extracorporeal MST-enhanced devices is probably the most mature and established field of MST applications. There are numerous examples of MST components integrated into external diagnostic and monitoring systems. These include handheld diagnostic devices such as optical bilirubin analyzers based on a MST spectrometer [29], sensors embedded into smart textiles or wearable ECG foils [2] (Fig. 11.3).

Often MST applications are combined with wireless technologies to enable patient monitoring without restrictions in mobility. Miniaturized telemetry units using the Bluetooth standard transmit parameters to a patient data management systems and electronic patient records. This allows both the patient and the attending physician to deal efficiently with monitoring data.
