Flexible/stretchable sensors required to tolerate large deformations without loss of function.
•Integration with irregular/frequently deformed interfaces(e.g.,human tissues,joints of instruments,soft surgical robots).
•Conductive elastomeric inks are a popular choice for making these.
•Obtained by mixing elastomers (e.g.,PDMS and polyurethane ) with conductive fillers (e.g., carbon black(CB), graphene and carbon nanotubes (CNT)).
•Low-cost and easy to produce.
•Suitable for large-scale fabrication of stretchable electronic devices through additive manufacturing (e.g., stencil and screen printing).
