Event Summary: Cardio Wearables 2021

Microtech Ventures have organised a series of events moving more towards the direction of medical wearables and sensors. Events progressed from "Medical MEMS and Sensors", to "Medical Wearables", and now onto a subset within that of "Cardio Wearables". This online event took place with around 100 attendees in August 2021, with presentations from companies, academics, researchers and physicians across three days.

Stretchable Battery That is Powered by Sweat

Stretchable Battery That is Powered by Sweat

Scientists have developed a soft and stretchable battery that is powered by human perspiration. The prototype battery consists of printed silver flake electrodes that generate electricity in the presence of sweat. Measuring 2 cm by 2 cm and as flat as a small paper bandage, the battery is affixed to a flexible and sweat absorbent textile that is stretchable and attachable to wearable devices, like watches, wrist bands or arm straps.

This Touchy-Feely Glove Senses and Maps Tactile Stimuli

Researchers have designed a new touch-sensing glove that can "feel" pressure and other tactile stimuli. The inside of the glove is threaded with a system of sensors that detects, measures, and maps small changes in pressure across the glove. The individual sensors are highly attuned and can pick up very weak vibrations across the skin, such as from a person's pulse.

A Dissolvable Smartwatch Makes for Easier Electronics Recycling

A Dissolvable Smartwatch Makes for Easier Electronics Recycling

Small electronics, including smartwatches and fitness trackers, aren't easily dismantled and recycled. So when a new model comes out, most users send the old devices into hazardous waste streams. To simplify small electronics recycling, researchers have developed a two-metal nanocomposite for circuits that disintegrates when submerged in water. They demonstrated the circuits in a prototype transient device — a functional smartwatch that dissolved within 40 hours.

Exploring Human-Body Communications with Binaural Hearing Aids

Exploring Human-Body Communications with Binaural Hearing Aids

Wearable technology seems all poised to take over next-generation electronics, yet most wireless communication techniques are not up to the task. To tackle this issue, scientists delved deep into human-body communications, in which human tissue is used as the transmission medium for electromagnetic signals. Their findings pave the way to more efficient and safer head-worn devices, such as binaural hearing aids and earphones.
