Using thin-film electronic patches or the so-called electronic "tattoos" for biomonitoring is paving the way for the future of healthcare in terms of better signal quality, higher patient comfort and wearability.

Multi-Electrode Printed Bioelectronic Patches for Long-Term Electrophysiology

Penn State researchers have developed a novel nanoengineered granular hydrogel bioink that makes use of self-assembling nanoparticles and hydrogel microparticles, or microgels, to achieve previously unattained levels of porosity, shape fidelity and cell integration.

New granular hydrogel bioink could expand possibilities for tissue bioprinting

A team of researchers from Texas A&M University has developed a toe-tapping test for patients with Parkinson’s disease that gathers information from smart shoe insoles and transfers data to a simple phone application.

Toe-tapping test evaluates fall risk in Parkinson's patients

Design from the Swager Lab uses electronic polymers, rather than colored lines, to indicate a positive response, enabling quantitative monitoring of biomarkers.

Chemists develop a wireless electronic lateral flow assay test for biosensing

The wide range of 3D filaments that exist means that the possible applications are endless. We take a detailed look at interesting applications that are used in a variety of industries, covering medical uses, robotics, 3D printing with metal, and fashion.

3D filaments: endless applications for every industry

As a physicist and ‘real techie’, Sofie Baselmans dedicated her career to creating healthcare technology. Always searching for the ‘perfect’ workplace, she worked in a hospital and in several corporate environments.
