Implantable devices can help us better understand the behavior and effects of various diseases. However, an additionalprocedureis required to remove the deviceafter an initial implantation. Conventional electronics today form on the planar surfaces of brittle wafer substrates and are not compatible with the complex topology of body tissues. Therefore, stretchable and absorbable electronics are the two missing links in the design process of implantable monitors and in-vivo therapeutics. This talk presents the challenges, mechanics, and design strategies, behind apotential medical device that (a) integrates with human physiology, and (b)dissolves completely after its effective operation.
