    As a device manufacturer, your key consideration when selecting a tape is ensuring proper adhesion to the patient’s body. Medical adhesives can be used in a variety of applications, such as securing wearable sensors, health monitors or other medical devices. Depending on the user population, some adhesives – typically in tape form - need to be gentle for fragile skin, or able to adhere even in moist conditions. Whether it’s affixed for several hours, a day or even a week, your device needs to stay attached to do its job. While adhesion is critical, there are other factors that need to be considered.
