3D-printed wearable devices that are custom made for each user.
Do not require adhesives to stay in place
They do not require a tethered wire or battery to receive power, and instead harvest power wirelessly from a power casting device.
Can monitor a variety of physiological parameters, including body temperature and muscle deformation during physical activity.
These devices fit like a glove and obtain sensitive readings.
“Because of the way we fabricate the device and attach it to the body, we’re able to gather data a traditional, wrist-mounted wearable device wouldn’t be able to collect,” - Tucker Stuart, co-researcher of the study.
