Dr Lei He, Co-founder & CEO – Xtretch Technologies, LLC Topic: A Flexible Platform for Comfortable Wearable Electronics
Different from traditional rigid electronic products, wearable electronics requires a necessary comfortable interface for user attachment. Most current technologies work on devices’ flexibility, which is far from comfortness since our skin is stretchable. Xtretch’s patented technology provides system level solutions for stretchable electronics to integrate advanced MEMS sensors, high-performance IC and communication modules into a stretchable platform for a comfortable, reliable and practical human-machine interface. This talk will present two aspects of our solutions. The first one is key component development, manufacturing stretchable battery employing mechanical metastructure design. The second one is stretchable system integration, packing the system to improve skin contact feeling and sensing accuracy by combining soft and hard material. Both aspects demonstrate our innovative method with distinguished advantages in applications for consumer electronics and personal health monitoring.
