Release Liners Support Remote Patient Monitoring

Borne out of necessity due to COVID-19, telehealth is becoming more standard, and the enablement of care at home through remote patient monitoring and self-diagnostics is growing. The trend in telehealth is showing investments in easy-to-use technology for consumers, favorable consumer perceptions, and continued growth of remote patient monitoring devices.

Silicone Adhesives Offer Advantages for Performance and Patient Comfort

Silicone adhesives are a preferred material for medical applications because they deliver the appropriate adhesion with gentle removal from the skin. Throughout the device’s application, therapeutic wear, and removal, the adhesive must ensure that the device stays in place and doesn’t damage the skin. Silicone pressure-sensitive adhesives for geriatric, neonatal, and other fragile skincare applications deliver enhanced patient comfort, extended wear time, and minimized risk of damage upon removal.
When using a silicone adhesive, it is imperative to choose the appropriate release liner. Silicone adhesives will not properly release from traditional release coatings, and high temperatures are required to cure these adhesives. Fox River Associates has the experience and expertise to help you determine the right release liner for your application.
