Title: Skin Monitoring system

 

Invention: This device is a flexible sensor capable of conforming to the skin of a patient to record data relevant to overall skin health.

 

Background: The device tracks the variable elastic modulus between healthy and unhealthy skin. This can determine efficacy of beauty products that claim to deliver healthier skin to users or even detect malignant tumors non-invasively. Also capable of computing spatial maps for skin lesions over a large area.

 

Applications:

•       Non-invasive tumor detection

•       Progressive tumor tracking

•       Spatial mapping of large skin lesions

•       Cosmetic efficacy testing

 

Advantages:

•       Non-invasive

•       Highly sensitive

•       Spatial mapping capabilities
