Graphene rubber bands stretch limitations of body motion sensors
University of Surrey : 16 August, 2014  (Technical Article)
Although body motion sensors already exist in different forms, they have not been widely used due to their complexity and cost of production. Now researchers from the University of Surrey and Trinity College Dublin have for the first time treated common elastic bands with graphene, to create a flexible sensor that is sensitive enough for medical use and can be made cheaply.
