Fingertip surgery



A stretchable electronic sensor may replace the scalpel and other operating room tools for some surgical procedures. It lets physicians feel electronic activity and slice tissue with their fingertips. Futuristicnews.com reports that researchers at the University of Illinois, Northwestern University and Dalian (China) University of Technology changed hard semiconductors into flexible electronics “and managed to produce special materials, which could be used for surgical gloves that give their wearer an enhanced sense of touch.

” The news website states that silicon was transformed into ultrathin “nanomembranes, cut into wavy shapes and combined with a rubbery membrane.”
