Printable piezoresistive carbon formulation for stretch and flex sensors in e-textile applications

Printable piezoresistive carbon formulation for stretch and flex sensors in e-textile applications
Printable piezoresistive carbon formulation for stretch and flex sensors in e-textile applications

In this paper, we present a carbon-based formulation that is suitable for stencil printing on textiles to fabricate stretch and flex sensors for the detection of human joint movement. This novel carbon-based formulation demonstrates (1) highly stretchable and high change in resistance, which can be used as the stretch and flex sensor for strain measurement; (2) good wettability, which enables it to be combined with other printable functional pastes used in printed electronics. This paper will show the material used in the formulation and the piezoresistive pattern printed onto textiles. The performance of the stretch and flex sensor will also be demonstrated, which is designed to be used in body sensing networks for sensing the joint movement.

Abstract

In this paper, we present a carbon-based formulation that is suitable for stencil printing on textiles to fabricate stretch and flex sensors for the detection of human joint movement. This novel carbon-based formulation demonstrates (1) highly stretchable and high change in resistance, which can be used as the stretch and flex sensor for strain measurement; (2) good wettability, which enables it to be combined with other printable functional pastes used in printed electronics. This paper will show the material used in the formulation and the piezoresistive pattern printed onto textiles. The performance of the stretch and flex sensor will also be demonstrated, which is designed to be used in body sensing networks for sensing the joint movement.
