Wireless Strain Monitoring: A Microfluidic, Reversibly Stretchable, Large-Area Wireless Strain Sensor (Adv. Funct. Mater. 12/2011)
Shi Cheng and Zhigang Wu demonstrate a new concept of wireless strain sensors, on page 2282, by combining microfluidic stretchable radiofrequency electronics with established integrated circuits. The implemented sensing device is capable of measuring repeated large-area strains of a human joint. The data are transferred wirelessly to a computer system for realtime healthcare or fitness monitoring.
