Printed Electronics Could be Bespoke Bandages

Printed Electronics Could be Bespoke Bandages
Flexible electronics printed directly onto the skin could open the door to bespoke biosensors and smart bandages.

The print-in-place technique eliminates the need for harsh processing with chemicals and high temperatures—which is not usually compatible with human skin. Instead, the printing technology from the team at Duke University involves using semi-conducting ink and two other printable components to create the flexible electronic. According to the team, the technology could lend itself ideally to small, bespoke devices, such as bandages embedded with biosensors personalized for specific patients.
