MC10 uses stretchable circuit technology to make lightweight and flexible body monitoring patches. These patches can bend, stretch and move with the human skin they are applied on and can monitor anything from blood pressure to brain activity and muscle function. These patches transmit data to the users’ mobile device so monitoring can be done wirelessly and in real-time. The patches are powered in various ways including using thin film batteries and built-in inductive power capabilities. While the company is currently focused on athletes (i.e. health and fitness applications and partnerships with Reebok and McKesson), their products have wide and scalable possibilities ranging from monitoring babies to people with chronic disorders. MC10 raised additional capital last week.
