ieltz (IELTS) – IELTs, also known as Interpersonal Electronic Life Indicator, are an application developed by the ielters (IEEE) Institute of Electronics Technology to help people predict when their body will start producing hormone-related compounds, or if their hormones will change.
In a recent patent application, a researcher in Germany demonstrated that it is possible to track the changes of hormones in human body through the iELTs.
The researchers were able to track the transport of the hormone testosterone to a testis and a rise in progesterone.
They found that the body temperature and blood pressure rose significantly in people who had a rise of more than 15°C.
In a similar application, a German mechanical engineer at the Institute of Technology in Zurich, Thomas Kornhauer, demonstrated how a sensor can be used to measure changes in Hormone Release Factor, a marker of the release of hormones into the body.
Kornhauber also demonstrated that a single iELT can be attached to any device, including the Internet of Things devices, a concept that will be explored further in future studies.
