Electronic Skin Nanopatches for Continuous Blood Pressure Monitoring

Built upon Monash electronic skin technology platform with the world thinnest gold nanowires, this project aims to develop soft, thin, wearable and non-invasive heart health monitors allowing for continuously monitoring blood pressures anytime anywhere. The project will bring together nanotechnologist, electrical engineers, clinicians, information technologist and industrial design disciplines. We will collaborate to develop to develop blood pressure correlation algorithm and evaluate the sensing performances, which will create new knowledge and technologies
paving the way towards future commercialisation. This will contribute to the the growth of Australian MedTech industries as competitive global leaders in wearable technology industries.
