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."
