MBK Tape Solutions has been a leader in designing, developing and converting stick to skin patches for over 15 years for use with Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) medical devices. Continuous monitoring with the use of a CGM device that is secured to the skin with a medical grade pressure sensitive adhesive tape system provides an effective way to measure glucose levels in real-time throughout the day and night for diabetes management.
Being at the forefront in the wearable market, MBK Tape Solutions has helped engineer "stick to skin" solutions for wearable devices in many different industries: anything from 3D holographic sunglasses to nicotine cessation patches, constant glucose monitoring devices (CGM) and even some operating room solutions. Device manufactures and medical professionals are looking for conformable adhesive tapes that can hold devices securely for long-term wear and can be removed from the skin gently, without causing skin trauma. One of the most common questions asked, is there a long term PSA solution to stick to skin for more than 7 days?
