In this episode, we talk about how consumer grade wearable technology could be used to diagnose sleep disorders impacting ~1 billion people.
Sometimes manufacturers would like to install heating in objects that are difficult to heat. The armrest of your car. Your sporty winter coat. Bags for food delivery. Sleeping bags. etc This has been difficult to achieve until now. Read more about printed heater technology
Wearable electronic textiles are a demanding environment for reliable interconnects – the ability to function with movement and survive multiple cleanings and reuse. Good adhesion is particularly challenging in these wearable and conformable electronics applications. While solders provide the most conductive electrical connection, they are rigid and require not only the addition of an underfill adhesive but usually a post bond encapsulation. This Anisotropic Conductive Epoxy, provides reliable interconnections between electronic components and circuitry on textiles with excellent structural bonding, without encapsulation, even under repeated stretching and washings. This technology has been shown as a scalable assembly process for e-Textile manufacturing in an SMT line.
The technique opens a door to manufacturing of pressure-monitoring bandages, shade-shifting fabrics, or touch-sensing robots.
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.
Interdisciplinary team builds multi-task machine learning model for randomized controlled trial
3D-shaped mechanically-compliant soft force, pressure, or proximity sensor with ease of integration and good reliability data?
Technology for creating 3D force and proximity sensors based on silicone, offering also the ability to customize shape and characteristcs. Key application is in collaborative robots
Gallium-Indium-Tin is an interesting material for stretchable electronics. It can be formed into a non-toxic RoHS-compliant gel and applied to almost any substrate to form stretchable conductive metallizations and circuits.
