Article-Wearable Health Devices to Watch: Smart Diapers

Pixie Scientific's Smart Diapers

Pixie Scientific's Smart Diapers include an indicator that changes color based on a child's urine. The diapers can give parents information about their kid's kidney function and potential of developing a urinary tract infection, as well as help indicate type 1 diabetes. Parents scan a QR code on the diaper to get data on their smartphones, and they can also send results to a physician.
