 New Wearable, Stretchable Memory Device to Monitor Heart Rate

Researchers at Seoul National University in Korea have developed a highly flexible electronic patch that is capable of doing basic ECG monitoring while storing the data within novel nanocrystal floating gates.

The patch is made of a stretchable silicon membrane on top of which gold nanoparticles are placed so as to draw the conductive components. This terminates conductive films that have their unique limitations while increasing the memory of the device.

"The technology in this work provides a new wearable platform for the flash memory and signal amplification devices that are important for continuous monitoring and data storage of a patient's healthcare information," said Kim.

In the past few years, several types of watches and bands designed to monitor heart rate. But the components of these devices cannot be used in situations that require extreme stretchability. In addition, there are often problems with the stability or efficiency of data storage in the watches and bands.

To eliminate these issues, Dae-Hyeong Kim of the University with the help of his research team has designed the heart rate monitor. Their technology enables the wearable heart rate patch sustain with complicated mechanical deformations (or stretching) associated with movements a human wearer might perform.
