Abstract:Electrophysiology that records various bio-signals from living organisms has broad impacts on clinical diagnosis and study. Having a recording system, effectively small and compatible with wireless communication, not only leads to the new environment in which health monitoring can commonly take place outside the hospital with portable recording devices, but also contributes to development in neuroscience by enabling studies on neural activity with the help of an implantable neural interface. This thesis presents a soft, stretchable, and wireless biomedical electronics system for both skin-mountable and implantable applications. The wireless capability associated with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) allows continuous monitoring in portable devices in user-friendly environments. Furthermore, the mechanical superiority of the flexible and stretchable platform enables this type of system to be implanted in a living rat to record and stimulate a pelvic nerve.
