World’s thinnest, lightest signal amplifier enables bioinstrumentation with reduced noise

Conventionally, bioinstrumentation circuits for health care and medical use have consisted of hard electronic devices, such as silicon transistors. However, when soft biological tissues, such as skin, come into contact with hard electronic devices, they tend to become inflamed. Therefore, monitoring of biosignals in everyday life over a long period …
