1. An analyte monitoring system, the system comprising:

  • an electrochemical bendable sensor configured to measure a level of an analyte in a tear from a patient,wherein the sensor is configured to be secured to a portion of a patient'"'"'s body in a bended configuration,wherein the sensor is configured to be powered by inductive coupling, wherein the sensor comprises;

    a first wire comprising a working electrode configured to generate a signal indicative of an analyte concentration,a second wire comprising a reference electrode,a third wire comprising a counter electrode,wherein the first wire, the second wire, and the third wire are disposed in a triple-helix coiled configuration extending along a length of the sensor, anda flexible material configured to swell when hydrated by the tear; and

    sensor electronics configured to operatively connect to the sensor, wherein the sensor electronics are configured to process data obtained from the sensor.
