In recent years, several wearable biosensors for health monitoring have entered our daily lives and captured the attention of scientific and industry communities. Wearable biosensors are significantly attractive thanks to their aptitudes of real-time monitoring of health status.
Sensor patches are implanted onto the human skins with high added value components such as signal conditioning circuits, NFC (antenna) system for data communication, an energy storage system, a display, etc. Wearable sensors are designed for controlling skin fluids such as glucose, lactate, pH, cholesterol, etc., but also pulse rate, temperature, breath rate, respiration, alcohol, activity monitoring, etc. Thus, these biosensors find their applications both in health monitoring and fitness monitoring.
The rapid developments in solution-based nanomaterials processable by printing techniques (inkjet, screen printing, flexography, etc.) offered a promising perspective to the field of wearable sensors by enabling their cost-efficient manufacturing through printing on a wide range of flexible polymeric substrates. Nowadays, GenesInk offers to the market conductive and semi-conductive nanoinks adapted for biosensors applications: i.e., SmartInk, HeliosInk and Tranductive® ranges for antennas, connectivities and displays.
