Highly sensitive and flexible components are essential for applications in wearable electronics for digital health solutions. Using low-cost and scalable methods, we have developed a suite of conformal sensors for wellness and disease monitoring. Fabricated using commodity shrink-film, a shape memory polymer that retracts upon heat, stiffer nano materials deposited on the shrink substrate wrinkle. These high surface area wrinkled electrodes dramatically improve both elasticity and pressure sensitivity. We demonstrate a diverse array of applications for such low cost and manufacturable sensors. I will also discuss other larger initiatives I am involved with, including digital health solutions, sports performance monitoring, cellular and point of care assays and microfluidics.
