Skin contact adhesive solutions for wearable medical devices and skin-worn sensors



Wearable Technology for Healthcare Markets

With more people living longer than ever before and chronic medical conditions like diabetes or cardiovascular disease on the rise, traditional healthcare systems are being pushed to their limits. At the same time, the market for personal fitness devices and self-adhesive biosensors is constantly increasing. Wearable technology enables consumers and patients to monitor and manage their health and fitness data to receive personalized recommendations or even optimized medical treatments.
Skin-contact wearable devices have become the new hot topic amongst med tech companies and call for specialized self-adhesive products to enable reliable yet delicate adhesion on skin.

Skin-friendly adhesive technology is special in many ways

Since it is a living organ, “skin” is a demanding and delicate area to adhere to. Even more so when it comes to weakened, delicate skin due to medical conditions or the age of a person. Furthermore due to the fact that skin properties can vary throughout the wearing period of a medical device, e.g. during work-outs or simply due to the natural epidermis renewal process over time.

When adhering to skin, products need to be breathable yet water-resistant, repositionable and gentle, yet reliable and strong-enough to ensure long-term use on a variety of medical devices with different shapes, weights, and wear duration.

 

Our range of products for "adhesion on skin" applications combines carefully selected raw materials and excellence in production know-how.
