Batchelor, John C. and Makarovaite, Viktorija and Horne, Robert (2022) Epidermal and Conformal Electronics for BioSensing Applications. In: Whittow, William, ed. Bioelectromagnetics in Healthcare Advanced sensing and communication applications. IET, UK, pp. 221-236. ISBN 978-1-83953-349-5. E-ISBN 978-1-83953-350-1. (doi:10.1049/sbew555e_ch10) (KAR id:97934)


This chapter is concerned with low power epidermally or conformally mounted flexible sensing tags that use passive backscattered communications links with the UHF Gen2 RFID protocol (865–928 MHz). Very low-profile polymer or fabric substrate skin mountable UHF RFID tag designs are introduced, with proposed fabrication by inkjet printing, and incorporation of sensing, while alternatively, integrated, flexible silicon NFC sensing systems at 13.56 MHz have been pioneered.
