Thin, soft stick-on patches that stretch and move with the skin incorporate commercial, off-the-shelf chip-based electronics for sophisticated wireless health monitoring. The new device was developed by John A. Rogers of Illinois and Yonggang Huang of Northwestern University. (Credit: John A. Rogers, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)


The patches incorporate a unique microfluidic construction with wires folded like origami to allow the patch to bend and flex without being constrained by the rigid electronics components. (Credit: Felice Frankel, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
