Top Wearable Adhesive Tapes for CGM Applications


A few years ago, we prepared a short blog post that highlighted the selection criteria for stick-to-skin adhesives. To build on that – and to provide information a bit more specific to the CGM application – we reached out to some of our major medical adhesive suppliers and asked them to highlight some of their “go-to” tapes for CGM applications.   This list is by no means all-inclusive, but our hope is that it will provide a good starting point for folks that are trying to find the perfect adhesive for their remote monitoring CGM patch project.

Top Skin-Contact Adhesive Tapes for Pulse Oximetry Applications


We’ve written recently about the pros and cons of synthetic rubber, acrylic and silicone pressure sensitive adhesives in die-cut pulse oximetry applications. We’ve also talked about key pulse ox adhesive selection criteria. Today, we want to highlight some of the medical adhesive tapes offered by a few of our key supplier partners that are particularly applicable in die cut pulse oximetry products.

Pulse Oximetry Adhesive Selection - Part 2


As we mentioned earlier in 9 key factors to consider when selecting an adhesive tape for your pulse oximetry application there are multiple layers that go into a disposable die cut pulse oximetry bandage, and each of those layers will have varying performance requirements.   But the device layer isn’t the only thing that will drive adhesive selection – use case is also important. Some tapes are designed to be worn over the course of several days, while others are designed for relatively short periods of time. Some require the need for removability / repositionability, others do not. The variables are rather extensive. Fortunately, adhesives come in multiple formulations.  Here’s a quick primer on the pros and cons of each.
