Body coupled and large scale integrated organic bioelectronics (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Magnus Berggren

Paper Abstract

Organic bioelectronics, as sensors and actuators, provide unique functions when applied to biology and also humans, in the latter case targeting future health care. Here, a body area network is reported including organic sensor nodes, recording relevant health status parameters, and implantable actuators for delivery of pharmaceuticals. These are then included within electronic skin patches also comprising body-coupled communication protocols that transmit and receive information, via capacitive coupling, that is transported through the body. In a parallel communication pathway, sensor and actuator information is also collected into a Bluetooth-based unit for further transfer to cloud computing. While in the cloud, deep learning improve the sensor-to-actuator decision-making. Our complete system is the first in its kind, based on organic and Si-chip technology, performing sensory-regulated delivery of pharmaceuticals, supported by cloud connectivity and machine learning.
