Japan USES New Battery Technology To Develop Wearable Ultra-thin Ecg Monitoring Equipment

- Oct 08, 2018 -

Researchers at the riken institute and the university of Tokyo have developed an ultra-thin electrocardiogram (ecg) monitoring device that can be attached to the skin, the riken institute in Japan has announced.The device includes a new ultra-thin organic solar cell that can monitor your body for long periods of time.

Researchers at the riken institute and the university of Tokyo have previously developed an ultra-thin organic solar cell with high energy conversion efficiency, water resistance and heat resistance.This time, they have successfully developed flexible ultra-thin organic solar cells, with energy conversion efficiency of 10.5%, setting a new record for the conversion efficiency of flexible solar cells.

The newly developed ultra-thin organic solar cells are flexible and flexible and can be used as a power source to drive the wearable device stably for a long time.The researchers combined ultra-thin organic solar cells with sensors to create a thin ecg monitoring device that can be attached to the skin.In the absence of an external power supply, the researchers successfully used the device to obtain an ecg signal with good accuracy.

The research has been published in the new issue of the British journal nature.
