Researchers develop Elastic Skin Display

Researchers have developed an elastic display to be worn on the skin for monitoring health, according to a new study published on February 17, 2018.

Scientists from Japan’s University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Engineering collaborated with an industrial team for the development of a wearable sensor. They created an ultrathin, elastic display that works as an electrocardiogram.

This works as a wireless communication module integrated with biomedical sensor system known as skin electronics, to transmit biometric data to cloud.

Wearable devices can monitor health by first measuring vital signs, further transmitting data wirelessly to a smartphone. The readings or electrocardiogram waveforms can be displayed on the screen in real-time.

The latest development of skin electronics system aims at easing the strain on home healthcare systems in aging societies by providing non-invasive health monitoring and self-care at home.

“The current aging society requires user-friendly wearable sensors for monitoring patient vitals in order to reduce the burden on patients and family members providing nursing care,” says Someya, lead author. “Our system could serve as one of the long-awaited solutions to fulfill this need, which will ultimately lead to improving the quality of life for many.”
