Electronic Tattoo: Monitors Vital Organs

Electronic Tattoo

One problem of our current medical treatment process is that many medical diagnostics are bulky and expensive, limiting where they can be used.

If our doctors had access to sensors small enough to wear, we could better keep track of our health everywhere — not just in the hospital.

 Scientists and engineers discovered a way to basically shrink all of these bulky medical instruments into a thin (30 microns) polyester sheet with NO mass.
Usually, to monitor major body parts, doctors would have to use very large and heavy pieces of equipment, but they would not be needed anymore with the discovery of electronic tattoos.
In a study in Science Magazine, scientists and engineers explained that they have come up with a new technology that could save millions of lives in the future.
It is said to allow ultra-thin polymers embedded in electronic circuits to take electronic measurements of a person’s body activities. These devices can be placed on a person’s skin, looking like a temporary tattoo. They would monitor and measure changes in a person’s heart, brain and muscle activity.

This device uses micro-electronics technology called an epidermal electronic system (EES) and is said to be a development that will “transform” medical sensing technology, computer gaming and even spy operations, according to a study published last year.
One of its best features is that this device does not need any adhesive to attach to the skin. It simply duplicates the properties of human skin ( Thickness, creases, wrinkles etc.).

Since the project started, all experiments conducted have been successful. The only problem that these scientists and engineers face is that dead skin and sweat can affect the results of the monitoring.

Once these problems are solved, we could more than likely be seeing this amazing medical discovery very soon.

    wow, fascinating and freaky at the same time! I think adamsdaughter and stillthinking both have it summed up well!

  5. Wow! My mind is blown that something like that could even exist! I like it for its medical uses, but skeptical of “spy operations”. Sounds like a privacy invasion.

  6. Am I the only one that is freaked out by that? At the risk of sounding like a nut job, doesn’t this sound like the mark of the beast to anyone else?

      Exactly what I was thinking, plus it just seems gross. I have a traditional ink tattoo, but I don’t want anything “implanted” in or on my body. I’ll take my chances at staying healthy without it.
