And More Skin, Now for Health Monitoring

Argonne at work. 

Skin-Like Electronics Could Monitor Health Continuously

Argonne National Laboratory

Joseph E. Harmon, November 16, 2022

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, the University of Chicago, China's Tongji University, and the University of Southern California are developing flexible, wearable electronics that can monitor the wearer's health. The researchers created a skin-like neuromorphic chip from a plastic semiconductor film integrated with stretchable gold nanowire electrodes. In one experiment, the researchers assembled and trained an artificial intelligence device to differentiate healthy electrocardiogram signals from signals indicating health problems, which it did with more than 95% accuracy. The researchers also analyzed the plastic semiconductor under X-rays, in order to better understand its structure.  ... '
