Flexible Wireless Pressure/Strain Sensors for Personal Health Monitoring

Back to search results

Due to the growing aging population and continuously rising healthcare costs, wearable sensor-based health monitoring system has recently attracted increasing attention from researchers and clinicians. However, the use of such devices is largely limited due to poor stretchability, low sensitivity, and the lack of efficient data processing. To address these challenges, the proposed project will focus on developing a new class of flexible and stretchable strain/pressure sensors based on superelastic polymer composites consisting of conductive nanomaterials. The sensors with integrated wireless capabilities for real time health monitoring over an extended period of time will be the expected outcome of this project.
