As a new direction of applied chemistry, fiber electronics allow configuration changes from three to two dimensions and then to one dimension in electronic devices. The resulting fiber devices have unique properties, such as ultraflexibility, tissue adaptability and weavability, enabling their use in a variety of applications, particularly in various emerging fields related to implantable devices and wearable systems. Here, we summarize the different types of fiber electrode materials based on the one-dimensional configuration and their distinctive interfaces, various devices and promising applications and highlight the remaining challenges and future directions.

The rapid growth of applications that rely on artificial neural network (ANN) concepts gives rise to a staggering increase in the demand for hardware implementations of neural networks. New types of h...
This is a pilot trial testing enteral feeds that are high versus low in prebiotic fiber in 20 critically ill adults. The long-term goal is to determine the efficacy of fiber for the preven...
The effects of a dietary fiber on hunger and food intake will be tested in men and women. Participants will receive fiber as part of a breakfast meal on two occasions. On another occasion,...
Twenty healthy volunteers had their baseline parameters (symptoms, bowel habit, quality of life, fecal characteristics and microbiota) measured during a week of monitoring followed by rand...
The primary objective of the study is to determine if resistant starch reduces the 2 hour glycemic response as measured by positive incremental area under the blood glucose response curve ...
The study will assess the gastrointestinal tolerability of multiple servings of a novel dietary fiber at three different dose levels in generally healthy men and women. Double-blind contro...
A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
Male germ cells derived from SPERMATOGONIA. The euploid primary spermatocytes undergo MEIOSIS and give rise to the haploid secondary spermatocytes which in turn give rise to SPERMATIDS.
