A Wearable System for Sensing of Head and Mouth Activities
Many health issues related to obesity stem from poor eating and swallowing habits. Patients often report incorrect or misleading information about their eating habits to their doctor. A new technology developed by MSU inventors allows for the continuous unbiased monitoring of eating and swallowing health.
