Sterilizable, Wearable Computer Patch Safely Monitors Patients Health An international research team has succeeded in manufacturing the world’s first sterilizable flexible organic transistor. The transistor can easily be manufactured and is expected to be adopted into wearable health monitors and/or implantable devices such as a soft pace maker. The invention opens a new path to the development of thin film sensors which detect tumors, inflammations, and early cancers, broadening the usage of the organic transistors as medical devices due to its flexibility and ability to cover large areas. Potential applications offered by the biocompatible transistors include wearable electronics that read bio-information from outside the skin, or implantable electronics that directly extract health information from the body.
