Smart and Connected Wearable Electronics is an introduction to the latest advances in nanomaterial printing technologies and soft material packaging of wearable electronics for healthcare applications. The book is structured in three parts: Part I introduces the whole range of nanomanufacturing technologies, both conventional and emerging being employed to produce soft healthcare devices. Part II will describe the strategies to package and assemble individual components with various form factors and properties toward fully functional soft wearable systems. Lastly, Part III will introduce a number of healthcare applications based on recent advances in soft wearable systems. This book addresses critical advances in research to help enable the translation to functional commercial products. For example it introduces the methods with which different components are packaged to reveal mechanical compliance and robustness. Smart and Connected Wearable Electronics is suitable for readers as a go-to reference whether they are individuals conducting research in academia or working in commercial sectors.
