The liquid metals used in the study remain liquid at room temperature, making them ideal for unconventional surface molding. The researchers found that when force is applied to the liquid metal-coated textiles, the non-conductive oxygen-based layer formed after the coating ruptures, making the particles conductive.

Conductive tissue models are restored when cut, creating new conductive paths along the edge of the cut, making them suitable for use as circuit connectors, Joule heating, and flexible electrodes for measuring electrocardiogram (ECG) signals.

The antibacterial properties of the fabric protect against two common bacteria known for their antibiotic resistance, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. The fabric repels bacteria even when worn for a long time or in contact with other people.

The fabric can be used, for example, in a hospital setting.
