Gentag believes that wearable biosensors linked with NFC devices have the power to transform medical and consumer diagnostics. We first patented the concept of an electronic “second skin” over a decade ago.

NFC Skin Patches

From the National Labs to Hospitals and Homes

Radar Responsive Tags, a sophisticated geolocation and tracking technology, are capable of precision locating items or individuals over large areas. First developed at the US National Laboratories for the Department of Defense, these tiny wireless chips, combined with sensors, are capable of providing exquisite location services.

  • Mayo Clinic and Gentag, Inc. Announce Agreement To Develop Wireless Sensors for Treatment of Obesity and Diabetes

    March 4, 2015

    ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic and Gentag, Inc. have reached an agreement to develop the next generation of wearable biosensors designed to fight obesity and diabetes. “We are hoping that this technology will be game-changer. These patch biosensors may help us reduce global obesity and diabetes,” says James Levine, M.D., Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic endocrinologist and obesity researcher. “They are accurate, inexpensive, and can be integrated into the care people receive.” A first-of-its-kind, the wearable patch sensors are the size of a small bandage, and are designed to be painless, wireless and disposable. In the bandage is a sensor that communicates via a closed-loop diabetes...
