Integrated Smart Micro-Systems Towards Personalized Healthcare
Presents a thorough summary of recent advances in microelectronic systems and their applications for personalized healthcare
Integrated Smart Micro-Systems Towards Personalized Healthcare provides up-to-date coverage of developments in smart microelectronics and their applications in health-related areas such as sports safety, remote diagnosis, and closed-loop health management. Using a comprehensive approach to the rapidly growing field, this one-stop resource examines different methods, designs, materials, and applications of systems such as multi-modal sensing biomedical platforms and non-invasive health monitoring sensors.
The book's five parts detail the core units of micro-systems, self-charging power units, self-driven monitor patches, self-powered sensing platforms, and integrated health monitoring systems. Succinct chapters address topics including multi-functional material optimization, multi-dimensional electrode preparation, multi-scene application display, and the use of multi-modal signal sensing to monitor physical and chemical indicators during exercise. Throughout the text, the authors offer key insights on device performance improvement, reliable fabrication processing, and compatible integration designs.
