The rising interest in the development of new wearable electronic devices for mobile healthcare can be exemplified by great opportunities for the development of new methods for broader use of blood perfusion monitoring for the purposes of precision medicine. A fine analysis of capillary blood flow structure and its rhythmic oscillations in the time and frequency domains, coupled with a new possibility of round-the-clock monitoring, can provide valuable diagnostic information about the state of microvascular blood flow. In this chapter, we review recent advances in the development and clinical applications of a new class of wearable devices for blood perfusion monitoring and diagnosis of microvascular complications in type 2 diabetes.
