The next wave of electronic devices for healthcare

Bioelectronics is the application of electrical engineering principles to biology, medicine, behavior or health. The focus of this conference is on Printing electronics and 3D printing electronics.

Printing Electronics for healthcare
Printed electronics is an all-encompassing term for the printing method used to create electronic devices by printing on a variety of substrates. Originally, printed electronics related to organic or plastic electronics that use one or more inks made of carbon-based compounds. As demand for wearable devices and thinner electronics expands, printed electronics are being used to form flexible keyboards, antennas, electronic skin patches, and more.

The health sector is one of the segments that have the potential for printed and flexible electronics. Monitoring patients comfortably and preferably in their home environment is one example. We are seeing growth in Printed Electronics devices inspired, intelligent monitoring systems (f.i. ECG, EEG, and sleep diagnostics) that are not attached to your body with cables. Such devices are small in size, lightweight, and have a form factor that is comfortable for the patient.

Another application, the Biosensor
Biosensors offer a feasible solution to a variety of issues. These are Wearable electronic devices, a more advanced feature of Printed Electronics; embedded into everyday objects, used to monitor vital signs and spot significant biological abnormalities.

Printed Flexible wearable electronics, including Ion-sensor arrays, biosensor chips, or vital sensor patches, are receiving much interest due to their widespread use in the field of healthcare. Sensors made out of Printed Electronics technology operate continuously to ensure continuous monitoring of healthcare.

This market is growing rapidly and is an important extension to the other 3D printing sessions during this conference.

3D Printing Electronics for healthcare
As the world of 3D-printing is evolving, electronics is quickly becoming a new key player. Functional elements such as sensors, switches and printed circuit boards are now being integrated into 3D-printed products, paving the way for exciting new markets, applications, opportunities and new form factors particularly for the health care market!

On the crossroads of science, technology and business in 3D-printing electronics the speakers will fill you in on the latest breakthroughs, cutting edge research and business opportunities. Learn about printed and 3D-printed embedded electronics in healthcare.

Bioelectronics session
This session is a platform and information interface enabling an exchange of informations on market requirements, research interests and current results, skills and resources as well as facilitating the building of future partnerships. Academics, engineers, designers, and managers are invited to lecture on their state-of-the-art developments and future prospects or display their products and offers as exhibitor.

This conference topic is now integrated in the 3D Medical Conference, thus in the conference program.

The first edition of this conference took place in 2020. Since then the topic was covered on an annual base.
