At this year’s Consumer Electronic Showcase (CES) 2019, 3M , global leader in medical wound adhesive solutions brings to the fore its range of Body Worn Medical Adhesives ideal for various applications.
In practice, care givers use medical adhesives on a constant basis on patients in hospitals and clinics as post-surgical dressings, to secure tubing and devices,among other things.
Today, with the emerging trend of wearable devices that attach directly to the body there’s greater need for new products that expand capabilities. For wearable devices to function optimally and properly while being attached to the body for extended periods, they require adhesives that stay attached on the body for days.
What this means is, irrespective of the sweating, tug and toss that goes on while being attached on the body, the device must stay attached securely while still allowing the patient’s skin breathe.
This is where body worn medical adhesives come into play, helping medical devices and wearables stick on and stay attached to the patient or wearer’s skin for longer.
Industry leader in providing adhesive solutions, 3M now offers a variety of products designed for medical applications. These include products such as silicone adhesives, transparent adhesives, and all kinds of other solutions.
