Wearable electronic patches (wearables) are already being used in many areas of medicine, including patient monitoring and diagnosis.

For this purpose, Covestro has developed special breathable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) films from the Platilon range. The materials are suited and designed for customers using a roll-to-roll manufacturing process that allows wearables to be efficiently produced.

A prototype was produced in collaboration with the Holst Centre, which is known for its expertise in printed electronics and wearables. The materials being used are already ready for the market.

The electronics can be printed on the film and embedded in thermoformable polyurethane foam covered with a second film layer for better wearing comfort. The patch is then fixed with a special skin-compatible adhesive, which adheres firmly to the skin but allows painless removal of the patch.

The adhesive system and the thermoformable foam are based on Baymedix polyurethane raw materials. Covestro thus offers a complete solution for modern and high-quality wearable patches.

In addition to the wearable patch, Covestro will present a design study at K 2019 to present different wearable designs depending on their medical use.

Covestro is providing convincing design and material alternatives to currently available wearable raw materials. The company is considering advances in printed electronics to demonstrate that its materials can contribute to a design with a stronger patient focus that takes into account patient comfort and skin sensitivity.
