Researchers at the Conformable Decoders research group at the MIT Media Lab, including professor Canan Dağdeviren and graduate student Irmandy Wicaksono, have created a new flexible sensor for continuous health monitoring. They write,

"We introduce a new platform of modular, conformable (i.e., flexible and stretchable) distributed sensor networks that can be embedded into digitally-knit textiles. This platform can be customized for various forms, sizes and functions using standard, accessible and high-throughput textile manufacturing and garment patterning techniques. We have developed a tailored, electronic textile conformable suit (E-TeCS) to perform large-scale, multi-modal physiological (temperature, heart rate, and respiration) sensing in vivo."
