Report: Stretchable Electronics Market Will Grow to $500M Within a Decade

Stretchable electronics is a technology for building electronic circuits by depositing stretchable electronic devices and circuits onto stretchable substrates or embed them entirely in a stretchable material like silicones or polyurethanes. Stretchable electronics comes in many shapes and forms. Because of their elasticity and conformity, they are widely used in wearable medical devices. A new […]
Sensor to monitor cerebral aneurysm

Scientists Develop Stretchable Wireless Sensor to Monitor Healing of Cerebral Aneurysms

A brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain. The condition can be fatal; it can leak or rupture, causing bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke). There are treatments available, but even after treatment, a cerebral aneurysm can continue developing and how it heals cannot be predicted. Related MIT […]
