Abstract

We propose 3D electroosmotic microchannels (EOC) for rapid and mass transportation of body fluids, especially tears and interstitial fluid in wearable devices. We designed two types of EOC with different stiffness made of polymer materials. Soft and transparent EOC can be applied to world's first contact lens device that protect eyes from drying by transported tears. Rigid EOC supported by porous materials can be applied to microneedle arrays that generate interstitial fluid flow for rapid transdermal drug delivery. We believe that these two EOCs will be useful in development of wearable medical devices.
