New tech patient monitoring patch sends your vital information to your doctor wirelessly

As wireless devices develop and get smaller, we are seeing some interesting achievements when it comes to medicine. Today we have a special monitoring patch for patients, so let’s have a closer look at it.

It is called epidermal electronic system and it has same stiffness, bending rigidity, thickness, and mass density as our very own epidermis. The purpose of this device is to be mechanically invisible to the patient, while sending healthcare related information such as heart rate and
temperature to your physician wirelessly. Since this device is being patched to your skin, it is designed so it resembles human skin as much as possible. As for the electronic sensors, they have been embedded in a film that is thinner than a diameter of a human hair, and it is placed on a polyester backing. This means that sensors will stick to your skin at all times, while being extremely flexible as a part of your skin.
We have to mention that in order to get this sensor off all that you have to do is to wait for natural shredding of the skin to occur, so this ensures that it doesn’t get taken off by accident.
