Flexible and stretchable electronics for wearable healthcare

Abstract

Measuring the quality of human health and wellbeing is one of the key growth areas in our society. Preferably, these measurements are done as unobtrusive as possible. These sensoric devices are then to be integrated directly on the human body as a patch or integrated into garments. This requires the devices to be very thin, flexible and sometimes even stretchable. An overview will be given of recent technology developments in this domain and concrete application examples will be shown. Keywords—flexible electronics, stretchable electronics
