A new method of manufacturing flexible electronics could help bring health-monitoring electronic patches to the mainstream.
The technique, from a team at Waseda University, eliminates the need for soldering or glue. Instead, the patches are made by using a commercial inkjet printer to print the silver, conductive ‘wiring” on a thin, elastomeric film. Since the procedure does not require high temperatures, the final products remain flexible and offer better adhesion than their traditionally made counterparts.
