Special Issue Introduction

Flexible sensors represent a significant advancement in sensor technology thanks to their adaptability and suitability for various complex applications. Compared to traditional rigid sensors, flexible sensors present high conformability, enabling their applications to diverse surface shapes, including the human skin, internal organs, or uneven environmental surfaces, along with high stretchability, promoting their use for contexts involving movement or expansion, such as on skin or soft robotics. Additionally, they are lightweight and thin, and exhibit higher sensitivity, essential for accurate data collection in health monitoring and environmental surveillance.

This Special Issue covers recent breakthroughs in flexible electronics, including new materials, fabrication strategies, and properties, emphasizing various applications of flexible sensors based on different material designs in monitoring systems dedicated to personalized health (not limited to physiological monitoring), implantable and drug delivery biomedical devices, and environmental monitoring (not limited to pollutants, humidity, and temperature).
