What is hiding inside wearables?

Dear Sir or Madam,

Whether as helpers in sports, as assistants in everyday life or in the monitoring of chronic diseases: Wearables are full of technology, from sensors to batteries. In our current Special, we took a closer look at new manufacturing processes of components that are inside our small, smart companions – both now and in future.

Have a sunny week,

Timo Roth

Wearables greatly help in the medical field to measure various parameters such as heart or respiratory rate – discreetly in the patient's everyday life. However, there are some devices that are perceived as uncomfortable or even disturbing. This can not only impair the well-being of the patient but also falsify the results.

Innovations

New integrated biomaterial risk assessment testing system

PANBioRA is a four-year "Research and Innovation Action" funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme aiming to develop a modular system using cross-disciplinary techniques that will predict the patient-specific response to a given biomaterial and methods for analysing novel biomaterials. After six months new advances in different aspects of the system have been reached in the project.

A factory to go

In the future, companies will be able to offer flexible production close to their customers. A fully automated production line can be housed inside a 20-foot ISO container, which a heavy truck can transport quickly to wherever it is needed. Medical products can be manufactured in close proximity to a hospital, for instance.

Materials & Production

Fast, cheap and colorful 3D printing

People are exploring the use of 3D printing for wide-ranging applications, including manufacturing, medical devices, fashion and even food. But one of the most efficient forms of 3D printing suffers from a major drawback: It can only print objects that are gray or black in color. Now, researchers have tweaked the method so it can print in all of the colors of the rainbow.
