Human skin starts to suffer burns at temperatures as low as 40°C (100°F). Therefore, the exterior of any medical device that could potentially come in contact with skin must stay below this limit. Thus, high operating efficiency and the ability to spread the heat that is generated over a wide area is critical in multiple areas: sensor lifetime, image clarity and patient safety." via EE Times

Organic Field Effect Transistors (OFETs) "Previously, this market was more considered as a laboratory curiosity or probably a future technology with no clear direction towards commercialization.
