Electronic Skin Patches for General Patient Monitoring

Electronic Skin Patches for General Patient Monitoring

Electronic skin patches could well be described as the ultimate wearable electronic device. They deploy sensors, processing, energy storage, and communication directly onto the body, often attached via an adhesive. Patient monitoring, the continuous monitoring of patient vital signs for medical care, is a key application for electronic skin patches. In both inpatient (within the hospital) and outpatient (outside the hospital) monitoring, there are pain points with the current care model that can be solved with skin patches. In this premium article, IDTechEx discusses the application of skin patches in general patient monitoring, where patches bring value to this space, what challenges and opportunities face the market, and the overall outlook.
