Electronics will stamp on the human body




Electronics will stamp on the human body March 12, 2013

Scientists have learned to “print” flexible electronics on the human skin, which allows to wear a electronic device for a long time, continuing to engage in the usual cases. Such systems can be used to monitor the health of patients and the control of the treatment process of the affected tissues, located near the surface of the skin.

Possibility of so-called “epidermal electronics” have been shown in earlier studies, John Rogers (John Rogers) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). The printing device consists of an extremely thin electrodes, sensors, wireless power and communications. In previous designs, researchers used thin and soft elastomeric substrate, which is “great for the office, but is not suitable for the aquatic environment.” Rogers’ team improved printing technology to the skin, improving the strength characteristics of the electronic devices.

“You do not need any substrate. Now, to transfer ultra-mesh electronics on the skin can use a rubber stamp ”

– Says the researcher.

Thus, the decision to reduce the thickness of the substrate allows the device to one-third and increase comfort during wear. electronics will stay on the body for up to two weeks until the skin begins to peel.

Technology commercialization company will MC10, Rogers founded in 2008.
