Abstract

The Young's modulus of human skin is of great interests to dermatology, cutaneous pathology, and cosmetic industry. A wearable, ultrathin, and stretchable device provides a noninvasive approach to measure the Young's modulus of human skin at any location, and in a way that is mechanically invisible to the subject. A mechanics model is developed in this paper to establish the relation between the sensor voltage and the skin modulus, which, together with the experiments, provides a robust way to determine the Young's modulus of the human skin.
