The team at Profusa is developing a family of tiny biosensors composed of a tissue-like hydrogel, similar to a soft contact lens, that are painlessly placed under the skin with a single injection.

Each biosensor is a flexible fiber about 5mm long and half a milometer wide. In the future, these sensors can be used to monitor glucose, lactate, carbon dioxide, and other molecules.
