StretchSkin Technologies is a Singapore-based deep tech startup focused on the development of wearables based on stretchable electronics technology. A core technology required for designing the next generation of wearable sensors is flexible and stretchable electronics, which are deformable into curvilinear shapes to enable functionalities that were impossible to achieve by traditional hard and rigid electronics.
StretchSkin’s stretchable electronics take on a hybrid combination of soft functional materials, compliant membranes, sensors, and integrated functional chip components to achieve mechanical reliability and sensitivity along with high flexibility and stretchability attributes. We use high-performance nano-materials, nanowires, nanoparticles in a polymer matrix due to its excellent electrical and mechanical properties. At the same time, it also has biocompatible qualities making it suitable for the human skin. A conforming contact will allow continuous, real-time monitoring of body movements and detect a subtle change of motion. Apart from motion detection, StretchSkin soft sensors also detect force.
These sensors are under intensive testing and further development, and are currently accessible to a limited number of users with innovative use-cases that address significant market needs.
