Wearable technology devices are increasingly being developed for the medical and healthcare markers, especially because of the growing number of patients overloading hospitals and medical centres. The market for flexible, wearable medical electronics products has grown in the past few years. Medical patches are utilized for continuously monitoring chronically ill patients, soldiers in combat, firemen, pilots, premature babies, structural health monitors, soft robotics, prosthetics etc.
Most wearable medical devices originally developed featured integrated circuits on solid substrates in rigid packages. However, these are mechanically incompatible with soft and curvilinear human body, which leads unreliable and unrepeatable measurement results due to unreliable skin contact and changing measurement locations. A growing number of wearable devices are based on flexible and stretchable skin sensors.
