Researchers at South Korea’s Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) and Sungkyunkwan University have developed a "patch-based health diagnosis sensor system" that adheres to skin like a bandage. The sensor gleans health data in real time by tracking biosignals and certain movements. The researchers created a stable architecture allowing the sensors to function without suffering damage from intensive movement, and enhanced their vertical elasticity via a zigzag paper craft framework. The devices are made from a waterproof material to avoid problems in the collection of accurate data, and can be linked to smartphones via Bluetooth to store the information on a cloud server. DGIST's Hyuk-Jun Kwon said, "The sensor is very useful because as long as it is attached to skin like a band-aid, it can collect various biodata information."   .... "
