These days, wearable biosensors are a very valuable tool for tracking the start of various acute and chronic diseases. Wearable biosensors (WBSs) are small, electrical devices that coordinate and collect sensations into the human body and can be present in the form of tattoos, gloves, clothing and inserts. WBSs are a flexible and practical tool for use in the healthcare industry, thanks to their ability to detect information, record it and estimate it accurately. WBSs help patients and doctors to communicate in both directions. It is simple to do painless evaluations of bodily fluids using various biochemical markers such as spit, sweat, skin, and tears. As the continuous state of capabilities of wearable and adaptable sensors continues to advance, the creation of new wearable gadgets that can fill the gap and handle the advantage of human well-being checking and clinical application is advancing. Blood is still the most crucial bio-liquid for assessing a person’s health, even though more attention has been paid to other bodily fluids that are naturally secreted and severe functions that are similar to those of blood. There has been a lot of interest in the capacity of compact biosensing devices to identify the analyte in bio-liquids for the early detection of human well-being.
