Fiber shaped strain sensors with great flexibility and knittability have been tremendously concerned due to the wide applications in health manager devices, especially in human motion detection and physicalogical signal monitoring. Herein, a novel fiber shaped strain sensor has been designed and prepared by interpenetrating AgNWs into POE nanofibrous yarn. The easy-to-obtain structure and simple roll-to-roll process make the continuous large-scale production of nanofibrous composite yarn possible. The continuous and alternating stretching and releasing reversibly change the contact probability between AgNWs in this interpenetrating networks, leading to the variations of electrical resistance of the sensor...

Flexible skin-mimicking electronics are highly desired for development of smart human-machine interfaces and wearable human-health monitors. Human skins are able to simultaneously detect different information, such as touch, friction, temperature, and humidity. However, due to the mutual interferences of sensors with different functions, it is still a big challenge to fabricate multifunctional electronic skins (E-skins). Herein, a combo temperature-pressure E-skin is reported through assembling a temperature sensor and a strain sensor in both of which flexible and transparent silk-nanofiber-derived carbon fiber membranes (SilkCFM) are used as the active material...

Stress being labelled by WHO as "the health epidemic of 21(st) century" need to be treated as a clarion call for devising strategies that aim at its early detection, for the reason that stress is the cause as well as the catalyst for several chronic human health disorders. The work reported here in is a progression towards the development of a stress detection system based on the electrodermal activity (EDA) in humans, which can further be incorporated into a wearable vital signs monitor. The utility of EDA as a potential physiological measure for classifying physical and psychological stressors is analyzed in this paper...
