3D-printed wearables for 24/7 operation

Arizona1Engineers at the University of Arizona have developed a type of wearable they call a “bio-symbiotic device”, which has several unprecedented benefits.

Not only are the devices customised, three-dimensional printed and based on body scans of wearers, but they can operate continuously using a combination of wireless power transfer and compact energy storage.

For the full story, see the November 2021 edition of Smart Textiles & Wearables.
