Key Agenda: Why Bio-integrated Electronics?
Conventional robotic technologies hold many promises to advance disease diagnosis and therapeutic research by enabling precise sensing and actuation in small-scale, leading to implantable, portable, or even wearable biomedical systems. These medical devices interfaced with our body are rigid, bulky, and remains permanently. Biological organs and systems, however, are soft and curvilinear, time-dynamic. To bridge this gap we are challenging to create soft robotics that provides intimate, minimally invasive, electrically stand-alone, and biocompatible interfaces with the human body so that people cannot feel the existence of the device.
