Tiivistelmä

To reach the full potential of wearables, electronics hardware must become soft, light-weight, thin, conformable to the body and, especially, inexpensive to manufacture. The proposed approach is based on low-cost printing processes enabling the wider exploitation of the results, i.e. affordable disposable sensors and e-textiles. Printing elastronic (elastic electronic) components like antennas, interconnects, electrodes, temperature sensors, and pressure sensors on low-cost soft and biocompatible substrates, like thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), enables continuous (24/7) monitoring. This presentation will focus on utilization of inkjet and screen printing technologies in elastronics fabrication.
