Abstract: 

Skeletal muscle monitoring provides valuable information about the muscle contractile properties which could be useful in various clinical applications. A wearable ultrasonic sensor (WUS) was constructed using a 110 μm thick polyvinylidene fluoride polymer piezoelectric film to perform a continuous hands-free muscle monitoring. The lightweight and flexible properties of WUS enables the stable attachment to the skin surface without affecting the tissue motion of interest, which results in reduced motion artifacts.
