POC and E Ink developed a flexible medical triage sensor bandage

The FlexTech Alliance completed its 154th technical project and developed a flexible medical triage bandage which monitors vital signs. Physical Optics Corporation and E Ink Corporation collaborated on this project and produced the bandage, which includes a printed circuit board (PCB), low power microcontroller, flexible E Ink panel, energy harvesting, a Bluetooth wireless interface and physiological sensors (ECG, skin temperature, and respiration rate).

The two companies say that the initial feedback was extremely positive and hopefully this will be commercialized into a product in the future.
