An innovative wearable health technology has been unveiled -- the plaster-like patch from South Korea that can monitor disorders, sense movement, and disburse drugs.
According to a paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers addressed the flexibility of the device: The way it stretches with the skin, rather than sitting awkwardly upon it. For now, it's just a prototype being tested in a Korean lab.
