In a recent study led by Mike Snyder and Xiao Li of Stanford University, physiological data gathered from wearable biosensors were found to be useful indicators of an individual’s health. RadTarge II D700 was used to measure personal radiation exposure over a six month period.

The information collected revealed heightened radiation exposure “during airline flights or during chance encounters with individuals or locations with high radiation. Most importantly, it demonstrates that simple personal wearable devices can identify these levels and provide immediate feedback.”
