Paper Stickers Monitor Vital Signs

Paper Stickers Monitor Vital Signs
A paper-based sticker able to track a patient’s vitals in real time offers an affordable, continuous health monitor.

Developed by a team from Purdue University, the EPEDs (epidermal, paper-based electronic devices) are made of cellulose—which lowers their cost significantly. Along with their embedded electronics, the biocompatible smart stickers feature a serpentine pattern that makes them as flexible as human skin and a molecular coating that repels water, oil and bacteria. The disposable stickers also cost about five cents to make, and are compatible with high-speed manufacturing processes.
