Illinois Researchers Develop Plastic Skin Patch with Electrical Activity for Wide Applications

SpecialChem - Aug 19, 2011

Engineers have developed a device platform that combines electronic components for sensing, medical diagnostics, communications and human-machine interfaces, all on an ultrathin skin-like patch that mounts directly onto the skin with the ease, flexibility and comfort of a temporary tattoo. Led by John A. Rogers, the Lee J. Flory-Founder Professor of Engineering at the University of Illinois, the researchers described their novel skin-mounted electronics. Plastic Skin Patch The circuit bends, wrinkles and stretches with the mechanical properties of skin. The researchers demonstrated their concept through a diverse array of electronic components mounted on a thin, rubbery substrate, including sensors, LEDs,...
