A New Generation of Biometric Monitoring
Biometric sensors are revolutionizing applications in healthcare, fitness, and beyond by offering remote vital monitoring. Printed biometric sensors are designed for wearable devices and are not only highly sensitive but also incredibly comfortable. Unlike traditional sensors that often rely on rigid components or intrusive wires, our materials enable companies to create sensors through a screen printing process on flexible polyurethane substrates. This approach results in sensors that are soft, pliable, and conform to the body's natural contours, enhancing user comfort and wearability. These printed biometric sensors are battery-powered, eliminating the need for cumbersome wires, and providing unparalleled freedom of movement. Our system also enables the option to solder directly onto the ink, providing a robust connection. Biometric sensors read electrical impulses from the body and transmit the data to a third-party app or software via Bluetooth or WiFi signals. Electrical impulses that can be tracked via biometric sensors include but are not limited to:
Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG): Heart rate
Electroencephalogram (EEG): Brain activity
Electromyogram (EMG): Muscle activity
Our conductive materials can be used to power biometric sensors across various applications including:
- Sports & Fitness—performance tracking, injury prevention
- Medical—remote patient monitoring
- Military—remote vital monitoring
Benefits of Biometric Sensors
Thin, conformable biometric sensors can be integrated into almost any garment incognito. So discrete the wearer won't know the difference.
Powered by rechargeable batteries or battery packs that are removed before washing.
- No Mess
Dry electrodes eliminate the need for messy gels.
Hand wash is recommended for high-use applications.
Stretchable inks and TPU film allow the sensors to move with the body.
