Abstract: For the first time exploratory feasibility study on the 'physical model of human tissue skin-based electronic transistor' (HTSBET) is presented. Effects of variables like: 1) distance (d) between device forming probes; 2) applied voltages; 3) probes pressure (p); 4) probes polarisation and shape, on the input/output characteristics as well as current gain factor β of the transistor are studied. Emerging applications of bio-material human tissue blood/skin-based electronic circuits towards cyborg implants, human-machine interface, human disease detection/healing, human health sensors and digital signal processing is visualised.

Keywords: biomaterials; human tissue; blood-skin input-output characteristics; skin-based electronic transistors; electronic circuits; blood; skin; physical modelling.
