Could Wearable Electronic Sensor Replace Surgeon Tools?

An innovative medical technology, a ‘stretchy’ electronic sensor, has been recently created by a U.S.- China researchers team. It could enable doctors feel electric activity and cut tissue with a touch of their fingertips, thus replacing traditional surgeon tools. Materials engineer John Rogers and his colleagues from the University of Illinois, Northwestern University and China’s Dalian University of Technology have changed hard semiconductors into flexible electronics and managed to produce special materials, which could be used for surgical gloves that give their wearer an enhanced sense of touch. They made silicon into ultrathin “nanomembranes,” which they cut into wavy shapes and combined with a rubbery membrane to enable it to stretch and wrap around curved surfaces without being damaged.
