Flexible Health Monitor Takes Readings in Motion

Flexible Health Monitor Takes Readings in Motion
A flexible health monitor embedded with stretchable electronics can be comfortably worn for long periods of time.

Developed by a team from Georgia Tech, the monitor is made up of an elastic substrate embedded with electronics connected by electrodes that can flex and stretch without damage. The monitor can read ECG, heart and respiration rate, and motion activity, transmitting the data to a paired device up to almost 50 feet away. The monitor eliminates the need for a conductive gel, which can cause irritation in some patients, and can even deliver accurate data from people who are motion.
