Smart rubber gloves could help diagnose cancer

Smart rubber gloves could help diagnose cancer
Described in Nature Nanotechnology, Japanese and U.S. researchers headed by Professor Takao Someya from the University of Tokyo have come up with a new pressure-sensing material that is not only thin and resistant to deformation, but also maintains accuracy even when bent in a variety of ways. If this novel sensor could be incorporated into examination gloves, then it could possibly aid cancer diagnosis by helping doctors feel tumors.
