NWO Vidi Award : Stretching the limits of stretchable electronics

Recognition: NWOVidiScientific

Description

The internal integration of extremely stretchable electronics with biological tissues, such as the brain and heart, makes futuristic medical applications possible, for example the control of epileptic fits. This project will investigate a revolutionary mechanism to make electronics extremely stretchable, demonstrated with an inflatable, in vivo ultrasound detector.
