Title: Three-dimensional electronic scaffold for cardiac applications

Abstract

Disclosed here is a three-dimensional electronic scaffold, comprising a porous scaffold and a plurality of micro-strain gauges distributed spatially inside the porous scaffold, wherein the micro-strain gauges are adapted to detect contraction force. Also disclosed is a method comprising detecting and mapping intra-tissue cardiac contraction force of one or more cardiac cells or tissues disposed in a three-dimensional electronic scaffold, wherein the three-dimensional electronic scaffold comprises a porous scaffold and a plurality of micro-strain gauges distributed spatially inside the porous scaffold and in contact with the cardiac cells or tissues, and wherein the micro-strain gauges are adapted to detect contraction force of the cardiac cells or tissues.
