A group of researchers led by Dr Sushmee Badhulika had developed new type of electronic skin (e-skin) on flexible, bio-degradable eraser substrate that can detect minute pressure variations, gesture communication and both tensile and compressive strain. The e-skin was fabricated using a solvent-free approach in a cleanroom-free environment thus making it economically viable and energy efficient device. The overall cost of the device is approx. 10 per sq. in. The e-skin was assembled on human hand, elbow and neck and their corresponding movements and touch sensation were monitored. The entire fabrication process is scalable and can be integrated to large area for mapping spatial pressure distribution. The fabricated device was integrated to Bluetooth wherein the data could be wirelessly transmitted to a smartphone with dedicated application module for each sensing thus enabling smartphone assisted personal healthcare monitoring.
