Flexible and Highly Reliable Sensor

Flexible and Highly Reliable Sensor

Real-time health monitoring and sensing abilities of robots require soft electronics, but a challenge of using such materials lie in their reliability. Unlike rigid devices, being elastic and pliable makes their performance less repeatable. The variation in reliability is known as hysteresis.

Wearable Sensor to Help ALS Patients Communicate

Wearable Sensor to Help ALS Patients Communicate

People with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis suffer from a gradual decline in their ability to control their muscles. As a result, they often lose the ability to speak, making it difficult to communicate with others.

Flexible and Biodegradable Electronic Blood Vessels

Flexible and Biodegradable Electronic Blood Vessels

Researchers in China and Switzerland have developed electronic blood vessels that can be actively tuned to address subtle changes in the body after implantation. The blood vessels--made of a metal-polymer conductor membrane that's flexible and biodegradable--mimic natural blood vessels, were conductive in in vitro experiments, and were able to effectively replace key arteries in rabbits.
