Article in Nature Communications

We present a computational method for designing wearable electro-physiological sensors that capture muscle movement, heart rate, and galvanic skin response. By optimizing sensors for the user’s body anatomy, highly compact wearable sensing devices can be fabricated easily and rapidly. They offer an optimal trade-off between signal quality and the size of the device, ensuring both functionality and ergonomic wearability. An interactive design tool allows designers […]
