With the mechanical properties of skin, a miniature diagnostic device unveiled today can be mounted directly to the wrist, as shown here, for EMG and other measurements.
The patch can be applied to the forehead for EEG and other tests as well.
The disposable patch peels off easily.
The electronic device incorporates sensors, diagnostics, and communications into an ultra-thin and flexible patch.
The device mimics the mechanical properties of skin.
The circuitry's filaments are serpentine-shaped, allowing the device to be squeezed.
The device can even be bent, stretched, and scrunched.
It can also be placed over a temporary tattoo for at least partial concealment.
