18 ( ANI ): A new stretchable
electronics has been found for stroke recovery treatment which has proven to be a game changer.
The display is stretchable
by as much as 45 percent of its original length.
While new manufacturing techniques, innovations in material design and advancements in nanotechnology have allowed researchers to create thin, soft and stretchable
wearable electronics, the UC San Diego engineers note in a recent paper that "a key challenge to enable adoption in practical use cases is the lack of correspondingly thin wearable energy sources.
Semiconductors are usually brittle and incorporating them into stretchable
materials usually involves complicated procedures, Yu said in the statement, making the resulting materials both less stable and more expensive than the new material created by his team.
OLED display a name, nor has it given out any details about any specific products that will sport the new display.
The researchers fabricated metasurface (flat nanostructured surfaces with subwavelength thickness) holograms on a stretchable
polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) substrate containing gold nano-rods.
Unfortunately, silicon materials cannot be used in stretchable
By contrast, a highly-stretchable
elastomer such as a household rubber band, with 200% to 400% elongation at break, would break at about 6 to 8 yards; while a high-performance stretchable
elastomer with 1000% elongation at break would extend to about 20 meters.

Described as a "professional at-home beauty shapewear mask," it is made from stretchable
LaceTex gauze--a combination of cotton and lace--and is designed to soothe, balance and tighten skin.
It is great solution for digital printing on stretchable
and hard to handle fabrics.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a stretchable
antenna that can be incorporated into wearable technologies, such as health monitoring devices.
This soft, flexible, stretchable
tubing is said to have good recovery and is more resistant to ozone than natural rubber latex tubing.
Imec works on stretchable
electronic circuits that can follow the random 3D shape of an object or body part, such as light sources for integration in textiles, and also develops an UltraThin Chip Package (UTCP), which greatly reduces the thickness (<100[micro]) and weight of packaged chips.
material in the Right-Fit zone is designed to keep the Elite snug and smooth and the shoulders feature a unique silicone print that keeps backpacks and slings from slipping while walking in the field.
