Background and Objectives
Research theme of “Healthcare for health and longevity” under the COI program “Frontier Center for Organic System Innovation” in Yamagata University aims to establish the society of high quality of life released from the any mental stress by the early-time predictive diagnosis and staying healthy till the end of life. To achieve this we are promoting the R&D for wearable organic devices, which enable a real-time monitoring system of health conditions (visualization of health degree) in daily life and provision of the information on healthy life style and optimum exercise. We strive to commercialize technologies in collaboration with the industries.
There are three research challenges, specifically :
① Wearable printed organic FET healthcare sensor unified with vital- and bio-sensors and organic FET amplifier.
② Wearable sensing system in which the organic sensing circuits and Si-LSI for data processing and communication are unified and mounted on a thin film by printing method.
③ Roll to roll printing technology with metal nanoink and functional ink to fabricate above devices. In addition, we will promote the experiment in practical human subjects with prototype sensor for the future commercialization.
