As we move into the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing era, the number of sensors deployed which seamlessly integrate themselves into environment is growing rapidly. These sensors should be minimally intrusive, both optically and mechanically, while providing high temporal and spatial contextual awareness of its environment. In this chapter, microfluidic sensors and circuits are presented to better bridge the physical and digital world for healthcare applications. Specifically, a discussion of cardiovascular sensing, glaucoma diagnosis and flexible tactile sensor arrays for smart skin application is presented.
