An integrated portable bio-monitoring system based on tough hydrogels for comprehensive detection of physiological activities
Advanced soft ion-conducting hydrogels have been developed rapidly in the integrated portable health monitoring equipment due to their higher sensitivity, sensory traits, tunable conductivity, and stretchability for physiological activities and personal healthcare detection. However, traditional hydrogel conductors are normally susceptible to large deformation and strong mechanical stress, which leads to inferior electro-mechanical stability for real application scenarios. Herein, a strong ionically conductive hydrogel (poly(vinyl alcohol)-boric acid-glycerol/sodium alginate-calcium chloride/electrolyte ions (PBG/SC/EI)) was designed by engineering the covalently and ionically crossli...
