Liquid Wire Brings Electronic Tech to Wearables Market

The company has raised about $10 million in a series A financing round to pilot manufacturing line and make key hires to address the medical patch market.

Liquid Wire is bringing its stretchable electronic technologies to the medical wearables market. The Portland, OR-based company has raised $10 million in series A financing round to help with this endeavor.

The firm produces conformal and pliable electronic circuits using a patented class of non-toxic printable liquid metals printed on plastic and textile substrates.

By more closely matching the material properties of human skin, Liquid Wire circuitry allows comfortable, long-term contact of sophisticated sensors and data transmission electronics for on-body, remote monitoring.

Liquid Wire said it plans to expand its Portland-based pilot manufacturing line and make key hires to address the medical patch market with the proceeds of the Series A round.

In a release, Mark Ronay, founder and CEO of Liquid Wire said, "We are excited to have such a highly regarded organization invest in our future and appreciate the continued support of our existing investors and customers. With this funding, we are well-positioned to continue to provide our global customers with new leading-edge stretchable circuits that enable electronics everywhere, especially new opportunities in the medical wearables market."
