Amore Pacific announced on the 2nd that it developed ultra-slim wearable electronic skin patch, which can measure the skin condition stably for a long time even in the external environmental changes.

Amore Pacific Research Institute published article about this electronic skin, which was developed through a joint study with a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) research team, in the ‘Science Advances’ on June 30.

Amore Pacific Research Institute dispatched researchers to MIT, and cooperated with Professor Kim Ji-hwan’s team, who developed thin and flexible semiconductor films with various materials. Han Ji-yeon, a senior researcher at the Amore Pacific Research Institute, was able to develop the ultra-slim wearable skin measuring patch that doesn't feel worn by applying perforation patterns similar to pores through the joint study over 3 years.

This electronic skin with flexible sensors has excellent breathability and reliable even during sweat inducing activities. Also, it is attached smoothly on the skin and not affected by movement, so it works stably for a long time.

Therefore, it is easy to observe changes in skin condition for a long time and there is less skin damage. Using related technologies, skin conditions can be measured and analyzed not only in daily life but also in various external environments, such as long time travel or exercise.
