The wearable gas sensors could be advanced through the development of new understanding toward nanomaterialsandsensor fabrication approaches in order tostudy gaseous biomarkers in humans & toxic gas in the surroundings. As per the Penn State researchers, the latest gas-detecting stretchable sensors is predicted to aid in identifying gaseous biomarkers in humans by examining the metabolic process using skin perspiration or exhaled breath and also detect harmful or toxic gasses in surroundings around the humans. There are possibilities that the human motions can cause stretching in skin could slowly deform or degrade the sensors and thus, making gas detection difficult.

The researchers have developed resilient sensor that is the most active sensor fabrication methods for variety of applications. The development in breath analysis can help build momentum toward forming a gas sensor that could have a larger platform of applications. The medical diagnosis is possible using gas sensors in identifyingvolatile organic compounds (VOCs) present in human breath so as to detect diseases such as cancer, amoebic dysentery, and intestinal bacterial infections.The earlier sensors only monitored pH and glucose levels but now the exhaled breathand the human skin perspiration is all possible. This new disease diagnostics can monitor biomarkers and detect toxic gasses present in the surrounding. The new system could thus be used to detect dangerous levels of compounds in the mines or air in order to save the lives of the health and safety of the workers.

The special characteristics of the currently fabricated gas sensors’safety and reliability make it a suitable option for the people. The laser-induced graphene (LIG) is a pocket-friendly way to develop a highly sensitive and selective sensor to detect VOCs and harmful gas at ultra-low levels. The self-heating of the sensor is all possible due to the low resistance. The use of thewearable, stretchable gas sensors in shaping the composite material increases its application.
