Wood on the skin – sustainable sensors

Dear Sir or Madam,

The skin is not only our largest organ, but also the most functionally versatile. It serves our senses, protects us from environmental influences and reveals a lot about our physical condition. Measuring medically relevant parameters through the skin is nothing new. To use 3D-printed sensors for this is not new either. But have you ever heard of wooden sensors? Find out more about the biodegradable analysis chips in the news!

Have a nice autumn week!

3D-Printing: Wood on our Skin

Materials & Production

Physiological parameters in our blood can be determined without painful punctures. Empa researchers are currently working with a Canadian team to develop flexible, biocompatible nanocellulose sensors that can be attached to the skin. The 3D-printed analytic chips made of renewable raw materials will even be biodegradable in future.

Imaging: improves diagnosis and treatment of dry eye disease

Innovations

Researchers have developed a new non-invasive optical imaging system that promises to improve diagnosis and treatments for dry eye disease. Dry eye, which often causes irritation and blurred vision, occurs when there is instability in the inner layer of the tear film that protects the outside of the eye.
