D9.1 - From Head to Toe: Sensors for applications at and within the human body

Th. Meiss
The miniaturization allows for a widespread use of sensors at humans while ensuring least backlash onto the user. Inertial sensors undergo a massive use as externally applied sensor devices for movement tracking in sports, work and as a signal input for assistance devices. Here, questions about packaging are already solved. Higher scientific and engineering questions and safety concerns remain for sensors applied inside the human body. Blood and tissue contact lead to very high demands...
