Stretchable Electronics May Allow Wearable Sensors to Diagnose ALS

Stretchable electronics that are “intrinsically” stretchable — meaning they have tissue-like mechanical properties that integrate sensory devices with human skin — can better detect signals from a patient’s body than current, more rigid sensors, a study suggests. For now, its researchers are looking into a design for these electronics as a means to diagnose amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). A goal is to move stretchable electronic wearable sensors into clinical disease monitoring. The design was described in the study “Strain-insensitive intrinsically…
