Biological systems are mechanically soft, with complex, time-dependent 3D curvilinear shapes; modern electronic technologies are rigid, with simple, static 2D layouts. Eliminating this profound mismatch in physical properties will create vast opportunities in man-made systems that can integrate with the human body intimately--for diagnostic, therapeutic, or surgical function--with important, unique capabilities in biomedical research and clinical healthcare. Over the last decade, a convergence of new concepts in materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and advanced manufacturing has led to the emergence of diverse, novel classes of "biocompatible" electronic systems with skin-like physical properties. This talk will describe key ideas and present some of the most recent device examples, including wireless, battery-free skin-integrated devices with applications in maternal, fetal, and neonatal care; in sleep monitoring; and in tracking of patients with aphasia and dysphagia.
