Choosing the right adhesive for your wearable device can be a bit trickier than once thought. Through innovation and development of medical grade adhesive tapes, there are quite a few options that will help your device “stick” to the skin, but is it the correct adhesive for your application? Product developments have helped support the growth of the medical device industry to offer different characteristics such as short versus long term wear, atraumatic removal from the skin to avoid MARSI (Medical Adhesive Related Skin Injury) and many more.
