Intelligent technologies for wearable end products – platforms, materials, sensors & distribution

Skin friendly fixation, haptic, design, cost conscious / R2R

In many cases, chronic diseases need permanent monitoring and treatment at the same time. New medical technologies like wearable electronic patches give patients higher mobility. But permanent skin contact and fixation is an extraordinary challenge for the human skin. Skin friendliness (no sensitization) but safe fixation, design, haptic and acceptable cost are achievable with the right choice of materials and production technologies. Manufacturer of high-tech polymer materials for key industries Covestro, is introducing soft electronic embedding on R2R technology + skin friendly fixation – high performance materials for maximum wearing comfort. www.covestro.de
