The technology developed in South Korea allows you to monitor the state of the body and warn in advance of possible violations.
Scientists from South Korea have created a nanotechnological tattoo that controls the state of human health and warning of possible problems. Reuters writes about this.
As specified, employees of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology from the city of Daejeon came up with an electronic tattoo ink made from liquid metal and carbon nanotubes, functioning as a bioelectrode. When connected to an ECG or other biosensor, they send heart rate readings and other data about the state of the body, such as glucose and lactate levels, to the monitor.
Scientists suggest that in the future it will be possible to abandon biosensors. So, they plan to connect a wireless chip directly integrated with the ink. This will allow you to receive signals about health problems immediately to an external device. Such display monitors can be located anywhere, including in patients' homes.
As the researchers emphasize, the ink is non-invasive and is made from particles based on gallium, a soft silvery metal also used in semiconductors or thermometers. Platinum-decorated carbon nanotubes help conduct electricity, ensuring the technology's longevity.
“When the ink is applied to the skin, the tattoo won't rub off even when rubbed,” the institute says.
