Application of E-Skin in Healthcare: An Overview

Author(s): Nayak Smita, Dhasade Dhanashri, Vaidhun Bhaskar


Electronics play an important role in developing devices that can be used for a wide range of purposes. Electronic skin (e-skin) is an incredibly thin electronic device that adheres to the skin and measures vital signs including heart rate, brain activity, and other bodily functions. Electronic skin is skin that has been created in a laboratory. E-skin can be used for replacing skin in persons with skin injuries such as burns, and skin illnesses, as well as in robotic appliances. Electronic skin (E-Skin) can be used to monitor health of a patient through the incorporation of sensors. This review discusses the construction of e-skin, its role in monitoring various biological parameters through non-invasive techniques and its applications. These sensors may pave the way for a slew of new applications remotely monitoring a patient's vital signs and body movements, providing data directly to computers that can better collect and store data for future decision-making. E-skin holds promise in detection as well as providing more advanced solutions than currently available commercial technologies.
