A novel biodegradable vascular stent is engineered using a biocompatible methacrylated polydiol citrate polymer that is delivered into the arterial space using a specially designed catheter. This technology, known as an in situ light-activated vascular scaffold, has tailorable mechanical properties and can release nitric oxide.

Fully printed electrodes consisting of a conducting polymer and an ionic liquid gel are fabricated on a stretchable textile. They are shown to record cardiac activity while the wearer is moving and for long periods of time, paving the way for the development of low-cost devices for continuous health monitoring.

A wearable health monitor using low-cost and recyclable paper continuously supervises and assesses body vital conditions simultaneously and in real time, such as blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and skin hydration. The affordability and high performance of the integrated “Paper Watch” provide an unprecedented flexible and portable approach for advanced personalized healthcare on the go.
- Merging of Thin- and Thick-Film Fabrication Technologies: Toward Soft Stretchable “Island–Bridge” Devices

Soft stretchable thick–thin-film devices are prepared by merging different fabrication technologies with different functional materials. The new “island–bridge” devices rely on screen-printed thick-film island electrodes, connected by thin-film serpentine interconnects. Such a hybrid fabrication process enables to realize high-performance stretchable materials toward a new class of soft electronics with new capabilities that cannot be achieved via individual fabrication routes.
- High-Performance 3D Printed Microtubular Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
Wenhua Huang, Caine Finnerty, Rebecca Sharp, Kang Wang and Brandon Balili
Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/admt.201600258
Through the use of microtubular solid oxide fuel cells, produced by a 3D additive manufacturing process, small-sized portable power systems with high power outputs are possible. These cells demonstrate power densities of 0.989 W cm−2 at 800 °C and survive more than 1055 rapid thermal cycles withstanding temperature changes greater than 350 °C min−1.
