Emerging Medical Applications Using Release Liners

Today’s medical industry is continually developing new products and devices for improved drug delivery and patient safety. Many of these products include direct skin contact products which include release liners from Fox River Associates.

Medical market release liners protect the adhesives on medical devices during storage, transportation, and application. They prevent the adhesive from sticking to other surfaces, maintaining its integrity until its ready to be used in the intended medical application.

Fox River Associates offers a full line of release liners for today’s emerging medical applications, including paper release liners and film release liners. Our experienced team is ready to work with you. Contact us today at 1-800-647-6579 or use the form on this page.

Emerging Medical Applications

Release liners are used in many medical applications including electrodes, bandages, and wound care. There are two emerging medical applications that are innovating drug delivery and medical monitoring for improved healthcare outcomes. Fox River Associates’ medical release liner team are versed in all medical release liner applications and are ready to work with you.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Wearable Sensors:  These digital health solutions capture and record patient physiologic data outside of a traditional healthcare environment. Direct skin contact devices can be used to monitor ECG rhythm for cardiology, detect neutropenic events in oncology, monitor body temperature for neurology, and even assess hypertension therapy efficacy. Release liners for wearable medical devices from Fox River Associates are a critical component to these sensors by carrying and protecting the skin adhesives during storage and transportation. Ensuring proper release of the sensor upon application is part of the design process Fox River Associates performs in helping you choose the optimal product for your application.

Transdermal Patches:  transdermal medical loaded patches are commonly used for motion sickness, nitroglycerin delivery to heart patients and for consumer nicotine patches. Transdermal (TDDS) technology is expanding into other unique medicines like medical THC (cannabis), Ritalin, new Parkinson’s treatments, and other emerging medicinal developments. Skin penetrating patches offer benefits in drug delivery over medical edibles, creams and vapes. Fox River Associates offers a full line of filmic release liners engineered for the specifications of medically loaded patches, including the growing need for medical cannabis delivery.
