Novel “Drawn-on-Skin” Electronics Platform Offers Better Data for Personalized Care

Scientists led by Cunjiang Yu, PhD, Bill D. Cook Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Houston, have developed a new form of electronics known as “drawn-on-skin electronics,” allowing multifunctional sensors and circuits to be drawn on the skin with an ink pen.

The advance, described in a paper entitled “Ultra-conformal drawn-on-skin electronics for multifunctional motion artifact-free sensing and point-of-care treatment,” in Nature Communications, allows for the collection of more precise, motion artifact-free health data, solving the long-standing problem of collecting precise biological data through a wearable device when the subject is in motion, according to the researchers.

“An accurate extraction of physiological and physical signals from human skin is crucial for health monitoring, disease prevention, and treatment. Recent advances in wearable bioelectronics directly embedded to the epidermal surface are a promising solution for future epidermal sensing. However, the existing wearable bioelectronics are susceptible to motion artifacts

The Hybrid Fitness Model Is the Future of Working Out

In the time BC—before COVID—digital and IRL workouts were like the David and Alexis Rose of the fitness world—constantly at odds with each other. Most people were either living room workout warriors or swore that they would never give up their gym memberships or studio passes. There were plenty of online-only offerings out there (Mirror, Obé, and Aaptiv, for example) but many major brands stayed true to their brick and mortar roots (Barry’s, for one). But as stay-at-home orders forced us all to embrace the practice of working out at home, it has paved the way for a future “omnichannel fitness”—in which brands have begun to offer fitness classes via both their online platforms and in brick and mortar locations—proving that it is possible for digital and IRL fitness to get along.

In the early days of quarantine, studios across the country rushed to bring their offerings online. Cult-favorites like

A needs-based supplement to the HOPE scholarship, in the name of Shirley Miller

frank lampard

Until fully funded, the Zell Miller Foundation will prioritize applicants based on the following criteria:

— Applicants who are Black, Asian, or Hispanic;

— Applicants enrolled in a public Historically Black College or University (HBCU);

— Applicants whose annual household income is below the median household income in Georgia;

— Applicants who are first generation college students;

— Applicants who are in their senior year.

Because it is funded with public money, Bryan Miller said that neither he nor his grandmother support returning the HOPE scholarship to its original needs-based roots. But the Shirley Miller Scholarship will be privately funded — and that makes a difference, Bryan Miller said.
