Emerging Technologies in Wearable Sensors
Wearable sensors have emerged as promising technologies for personalized health monitoring, sport and fitness tracking, and medical diagnostics. Devices have become thinner, softer, and stretchable, permitting seamless integration with the body through physical, chemical, and biological sensing with remote communication capabilities. However, challenges in both materials, electronics, and integration impede harnessing the full potential of wearables. Research to overcome these obstacles require combined efforts from multiple disciplines. This Special Topic focuses on the latest advancements, grand challenges and their solutions, as well as future prospects of wearable biosensors, spanning across materials and fabrication strategies to a wide range of sensing applications on the body.
