RALEIGH – The device might be a cap on your tooth or a band on your wrist. Whatever it is, researchers promise the wearer won’t notice it’s there.

What they are are sensor devices that can check a range of body functions, including vitals such as heart rate and oxygen levels. And, as a bonus, they are powered by energy harvested from the body wearing them.
