Presentation Summary

The increase in opportunities for conformable industrial and wearable sensors is driving advancements in unique sensing materials and technologies. A more flexible, hyper-elastic technology with printed electronics is a new advancement showing great promise in the marketplace.
The Hyper-Elastic Displacement sensor is a thin, lightweight, stretchable, rubber band-like device that offers a unique ability to take accurate and precisely measured strains of over 100% for millions of cycles.
Mr. Shannon will review the materials and technology as well as the ideal industrial and wearable applications in areas such as bending, high precision displacement, sports, fitness, gaming, rehab, and medical.
