About this webinar

Wearable Patches for Vital Signs Monitoring

In this talk we will elaborate on the design, development and manufacturing of wearable patches using low-cost processes. Focusing on remote monitoring use-cases, we will show how TNO Holst Centre applies knowledge of intrinsic material properties to model patch designs for optimal functional performance. We develop and characterize novel self-adhesive dry electrodes for long-term vital sign monitoring, and perform system testing on critical parameters including validation trials of patch concepts on volunteers. Simply, we unravel the sophisticated technology for your next generation wearable patch concepts.

Smart clothing for prevention of diseases by promoting healthy living

Clothing mediates between our bodies and the world, thereby shaping our perception and experience. The fact that it is personal, embodied and ubiquitous makes it a unique medium to support people in their daily lives in many different ways. We recognize the potential of smart clothing in response to societal challenges. In this talk, we will explain how our ambition to develop the next generation smart clothing enhances human health, thereby resulting in prevention of several diseases. Concrete application examples highlighting how TNO Holst Centre combines printed electronics with fashion aesthetics to promote healthy living will be given in this talk.

Dr. Charlotte Kjellander

Team Lead - Smart Patches and Smart Textiles
