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.
