The field of microelectronics in medicine is developing with lightning speed, that’s why stretchable skin with microelectronics might soon be used for monitoring our health conditions. Sensing is reached due to the fact, that stretchable skin relies on gold electrodes and other wires that are a few hundred nanometers thick, deposited in a serpentine manner onto thin films of silicon wafers, then applied to the stretchable polymers. The wires act as sensors and pick up information about a patient’s health and can report to doctors on a more real-time basis. This smart technology might be very helpful in treating diseases and could provide for intervention before a situation gets grave. Researchers plan to have the patches wirelessly transmit information to smartphones that are in immediate proximity.
