|New ‘smart’ Fabrics Can Monitor Your Health by Besmart2: 9:36am On Feb 26, 2017|
SFU engineering science professor Bonnie Gray has spent more than five years researching ways to embed a variety of electronic and micro fluidic sensors into fabric. It’s all part of a goal to create smart, flexible, wearable fabrics embedded with devices that can, for example, monitor athletes’ sweat for salt and lactate content, monitor heart rate, or test tears for glucose levels. Skin cancer survivors and others could wear these devices to monitor sun exposure. They could even be used for neonatal infants, eliminating the need to adhere electrodes to the infants’ delicate newborn skin.
Now, Gray and doctoral student Daehan Chung have come up with a way to screen-print the devices directly onto fabric. Gray is in discussions with other SFU researchers and local companies about commercializing the novel technology.
