Unobtrusive printed piezoelectric sensors for non-invasive biosignal monitoring

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Goal: The goal of this project is to develop unobtrusive, affordable and accurate piezoelectric sensors for non-invasive biosignal monitoring.

Proposal: In order to meet the requirements of unobtrusiveness, affordability and accuracy, it is proposed that such biosignal sensors should be fabricated of piezoelectric polymer P(VDF-TrFE) using printed electronics fabrication technologies. The optical transparency and biocompatibility of P(VDF-TrFE) coupled with ultra-thin form factor of
the device should result in sensors that are highly unobtrusive for the user. Furthermore, the ultra-thin form factor coupled with novel charge collector structure should maximize the sensor sensitivity, thereby increasing the accuracy of the biosignal measurement beyond the capabilities of conventional sensor structures. The sensor fabrication with
additive and scalable printed electronics fabrication technologies should result in devices that are affordable for the user and for the environment.
