Expanding the future of smart wearables with stretchable electronic patches
Smart wearables are the next step in the Internet of Things (IoT). Imagine a network of sensors and smart devices woven into our shirts and pants, worn on our skin or even implanted in our bodies to measure important body functions. The EU-funded SINTEC is working to make this a reality. It is developing soft, sticky and stretchable smart patches with sensors that can be used multiple times and for longer periods. This groundbreaking intra-body communication technique gives large bandwidth and secure consumption at low power. The project will test these sensor patches in a clinical environment and in athletics performance evaluation. For instance, the patches will be tested on the Swedish national skiing teams. A broader target group includes patients recovering from surgery.
