Novel 3D-Printing Technology to Print Sensor Electronics on Skin



[ihc-hide-content ihc_mb_type=”show” ihc_mb_who=”reg” ihc_mb_template=”3″ ]


A new 3D printing technology can print electronics in skin to provide chemical sensors for soldiers in combat zones and new treatments for skin disorders. The 3D-printing technique utilizes a specialized ink made of silver flakes, which can cure and conduct at room temperature, as conventional 3D-printing inks require temperatures up to 100˚C, which is inappropriate for printing on human skin. This method can have applications for soldiers in war zones, such as temporary chemical sensors or solar cells to charge essential electronics.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
