Wearable Tech Regulated as Medical Devices Can Revolutionize Healthcare | MDDI Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry News Products and Suppliers | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it
Across the developed world, healthcare systems face tremendous challenges driven by increasing costs, increasing demand (due to changing demographics, increasing longevity and greater incidence of chronic conditions) and big improvements in addressing complex, previously untreatable conditions. Most healthcare systems are on an economically unsustainable path as healthcare consumes an ever increasing portion of the GDP.
petabush's insight:

As long as these wearables deal with being wearable and do not become another device that patients dislike then great!

A Straightforward Method for Making Wearable Tech

A Straightforward Method for Making Wearable Tech | shubush healthwear | Scoop.it

Considering the pace of technological growth in recent decades, the convergence of humans and machines seems a foregone conclusion. Yet, unlike most machines, the body is far too flexible and squishy for modern advanced materials. So it falls on researchers to develop new stretchable technologies that are easily manufactured and relatively inexpensive.


Recently, a biomedical engineering team at Purdue University developed a methodology to generate zigzag patterns out of conventional wire that can extend up to five times in length. The wires can be utilized as conductive interconnects between sensors, allowing for flexible networks or meshes to be embedded or wrapped around 3D objects.


“This compares to only a few percent for an ordinary metal connection,” said Professor Barak Ziaie, leading the research in the press release. “The structures are also highly robust, capable of withstanding thousands of repeated stretch-and-release cycles.”


Even more intriguing, the approach utilizes a standard sewing machine to fabricate the system.


Using water-soluble thread, the technique involves stitching wire in zigzags onto standard transparencies used with overhead projectors.


A commercially available elastomer called Ecoflex is poured over the sheet and allowed to solidify. The thread is dissolved with warm water, allowing the flexible polymer with the embedded wires to be separated from the transparencies.


To demonstrate how their approach could be used for medical devices, the team generated a sensor system that wraps around a urinary catheter balloon - as the balloon inflates, the sensor gauges the strain.


This flexible system can measure much greater expansion than conventional approaches that employ rigid metal films that permit only small percentages of stretching before breaking.


The findings, to be published in a forthcoming paper, were reported at the Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems Workshop.

Sandy Williams Spencer's curator insight, August 6, 8:02 AM

I would love to have this little item. With COPD, I'm monitoring 02 and Heart Rate quite often. On the treadmill, it's constant monitoring. 


And when taking a walk or working around the house, if I'm not wearing 02-- I'm monitoring the need for it. 


When you have an illness of any sort, monitoring vitals is definitely important.  And the ability to send a quick message to friend or family member for help when trouble arises-- is imperative. http:///ginghamcountry.com/living
