Reusable wearable smart patches with Covestro raw materials and sensor technology from accensors
The medical sector relies on clever and constantly evolving products to ensure the best possible care for patients. Covestro joined forces with accensors, a German specialist on the development and production of film-based sensors, actuators and emitters, and provided raw materials for a new design of wearable skin patches. Adhesives and foams made from Baymedix® and Platilon® thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films as well as flexible electronics and printed sensors contributed to making this new design meet trends regarding miniaturization, skin-friendliness of materials and reduced waste with greater patch functionality.
