A joint research group of the Japan Institute of Physical Chemistry and the University of Tokyo has successfully developed a 'skin patch type ECG monitor' that measures the ECG waveform driven by 'ultra-thin organic solar cells'.
The joint R&D team developed a flexible ultra-thin organic solar cell and a skin-sMD sensor that combines the two to drive an ECG monitor without an external power supply, and successfully obtains a high-precision signal. This eliminates the need for power consumption. And the burden of wearing on the human body, and continuous access to body data.
Using this research result, it is expected to realize a new generation of independent drive type sensor devices, and monitor body data at any time.
