Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a simple printing method for a highly resilient stretch sensor. The stretch sensors, based on multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT)/silicon rubber (Ecoflex® 00-30) polymer nanocomposites, were printed on silicon rubber (SR) substrate. The sensors exhibit good hysteresis with high linearity and small drift. Due to the biocompatibility of SR and is very soft, strong and able to be stretched many times its original size without tearing and will rebound to its original form without distortion, the proposed stretch sensor is suitable for many biomedical and wearable sensors application.
