Parlex has successfully worked with many companies to manufacture and produce flexible circuits for noninvasive, disposable medical devices such as this pediatric oximetry sensor (figure A below).
As technology changes, our clients are requiring many more functions to be performed by skin patch products such as wireless connection, integration of multiple sensors and interpretation of sensor results. These and similar requirements are driving the demand for more complex “smart patch” devices to be packaged in a smaller and thinner, wearable form factor (figure B).
