Microfibre sensors as home-testing kits

Cambridge STaNThree-dimensional printed microfibre sensors with potential beyond the capabilities of conventional film-based devices have been developed in the UK.

The fibre printing technique developed at the University of Cambridge can be used to make non-contact, wearable, portable respiratory sensors that have a high sensitivity, are low cost and can be attached to a mobile phone to collect breath pattern information, sound and images at the same time.
