Why in News

Recently the scientists from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore have fabricated a skin conformal tattoo sensor about 20 micrometre thick.

Key Points

  • The scientists were working on wearable sensors that can retract information from the human body using its skin (largest organ of the human body).
  • Features: The tatto sensor promises continuous monitoring of vital health parameters of an individual, like pulse rate, respiration rate, and UV rays exposure, skin hydration level, glucose monitoring, and so on.
    • It is non-invasive and does not interfere with the daily activities of the user.
    • The sensor has a fast response and follows easy fabrication steps and can be patterned into any shape and size using a laser.
  • Benefit: The sensor serves as a single conduit for sensing respiration rate and pulse, dispensing with the need of mounting multiple sensors.
    • It has the potential to replace rigid and bulky health monitoring devices.
