3D-Printed, Personalized Wearable Electronics Shaped by 3D Datasets

Case ID:

This technology was developed to use 3D datasets to generate 3D printed wearable device tailored to each individual user. The technology works with simple photometric scans as well as MRI or CT data and produces a customized device, which enables month long wear with perfect fit with the ability to also customize sensor and electronics location to provide the highest sensing fidelity. 

Chronic conditions affect approximately 133 million Americans, ca. 40% of the population, according to the National Health Council. Chronic monitoring enables personalized treatments that significantly improve treatment outcomes. Multimodality of these monitors with capabilities such as blood pressure, glucose levels, blood oxygenation etc. provides a rich dataset that can be analyzed with modern signal processing methods.

Current shortcomings of wearable devices however are the fidelity of measurements which lacks behind bulky gold standards prohibiting the use in diagnostics and therapeutics. Therefore, there is a clear need for high fidelity devices that are imperceptible for the wearer to enable long term chronic measurements.

This technology allows for a 3D printed, customizable wearable technology that ensures a perfect personalized fit for any user thereby increasing the fidelity and ensuring consistent accuracy of the collected data. Furthermore, the device does not require any adhesive, reducing irritation and enable chronic measurements.
