Ausschreibung Masterarbeit: Nano-structuring of dielectric sensors for tongue- machine interfaces as Anti-snore trainer

Adequate sleep is a key part of healthy lifestyle and essential for your mind’s fitness. Every second person worldwide, however, is affected by disruptive snoring and sleep apnea – in more than 30% directly related to a lack of tongue muscle control. Current anti-snore treatments are either based on passive mouthguards or costly custom-made devices, which exhibit poor efficacy and lack scientific validation. Finally, uncomfortable designs, the burden at night and low motivation to change the life-style lead to early drop-out rates as high as 70%. A unique polymer nanotechnology for ultra-thin pressure sensors and stretchable electronics was developed and patented at the University of Basel, Biomaterials Science Center. […]
