Wearable medical devices for human monitoring are becoming increasingly common and refined. As new pieces of medical technology are created and older pieces are evaluated for efficacy and comfort, there is an opportunity to use cutting-edge electronics, especially flexible hybrid electronics (FHE), to enable new methods of human monitoring.

Why flexible hybrid electronics?

Flexible hybrid electronics combine the additive manufacturing approaches for electronics fabrication with the performance of thinned semiconductor devices and discrete components. This combination means the resulting devices can be stretchable, conformable,…
