The flexible wearable sensors with excellent stretchability, high sensitivity and good biocompatibility are signifi- cantly required for continuously physical condition tracking in health management and rehabilitation monitoring. Herein, we present a high-performance wearable sensor. The sensor is prepared with nanocomposite hydrogel by using silk fibroin (SF), polyacrylamide (PAM), polydopamine (PDA) and graphene oxide (GO). It can be used to monitor body motions (including large-scale and small-scale motions) as well as human electrophysiological (ECG) signals with high sensitivity, wide sensing range, and fast response time. Therefore, the proposed sensor is promising in the fields of rehabilitation, motion monitoring and disease diagnosis.
