Clinical tests that measure cortisol, which rises and falls naturally throughout the day, provide an objective gauge of emotional or physical stress and can help doctors tell if a patient's adrenal or pituitary gland is working properly. While current methods require waiting several days for results from a lab, with the novel patch, a user just needs to sweat enough to glisten, apply the patch and connect it to a device for analysis, giving the results within seconds.
