As reported on Eurekalert, here is how this patch was developed:

Researchers used screen printing to manufacture the patch on a thin, flexible polyester sheet that can be applied directly to the skin. An electrode to sense lactate was printed in the center of the patch, with two EKG electrodes bracketing it to the left and the right.

The next step is to add more sensors to these patches. More information is available here.
