Suturable sensors feel the strain

Stretchable sensors that are made from two conductive fibres in a double helical structure and with a hollow core can be directly sutured to connective tissues to wirelessly monitor strain. The computer-generated image on the cover illustrates a stretchable strain sensor with a double helical turn density of three turns per centimetre and a hollow core diameter of 500 micrometres.
