Wearable bioelectronic devices rely on oxidoreductase enzymes and have already demonstrated considerable promise for on-body applications ranging from highly selective non-invasive biomarker monitoring to epidermal energy harvesting. Critical to such progress is the judicious design of the enzyme-electronic interface, along with flexible platforms with mechanical properties similar to those of biological tissues. Such devices require special attention to the enzyme-electronic interface and to several considerations related to wearable applications, such as mechanical properties (flexibility and stretchability), operational stability in different biofluids and under changing conditions (e.g., pH, temperature), biofouling, selectivity, and low target concentrations. Keeping these requirements in mind, our group has pioneered a variety of wearable biocatalytic sensors and biofuel cells devices. By leveraging the advantages of biocatalysis, electrochemistry, and flexible electronics, and addressing key challenges, wearable bioelectronic devices could have a tremendous impact on diverse biomedical, fitness and defense fields.
