Intelligent Wearable Technology Made Feasible With High-Tech Polyurethane Materials
from Plastics Today
In the future, improved and even smarter products will likely also play a supporting role in medical diagnoses and treatments, and even discreetly deliver medications in precise and accurate dosages. This would, of course, require them to be able to be worn comfortably on the skin for extended periods – which is where an expert knowledge of materials and adhesives is required. The patches must adhere to the skin for as long as is needed, but be able to be removed with minimal discomfort. Covestro is developing integral and sustainable material solutions that make the wearables more comfortable to wear while also enabling further areas of application.
