Title: Systems, devices, and methods for contact measurement and modulation of material properties

Abstract

Materials and devices are provided for the sensing and manipulation of biomechanical and physiochemical properties of tissues or tissue surfaces. Examples of use include soft tissues such as skin or adipose tissues or more dense tissues such as muscle or heart or dense tissues such as bone. The materials and devices provide for in vivo measurements of biomechanical properties at the tissue surface, e.g. near surface regions of the epidermis or dermis or underlying structures. The devices can be non-invasive and/or non-destructive to the material and, especially for the biomaterials, can be biocompatible and/or biodegradable. The materials and devices can use ultrathin, stretchable networks of mechanical actuators and sensors constructed with nanoribbons of piezoelectric materials.
