Fixation and Electro-Medical Products


Fixation Devices

Working closely with your development team, our design and production engineers have the resources and expertise to produce the most cost effective fixation device for any application. Utilising a wide range of skin friendly and low trauma adhesive coated products, non-wovens, elastics, foams as well as hook and loop products, we will fast track your design from prototype to full-scale production.

Applications overview

Some of the more common uses for self-adhesive fixation devices include:

  • Central line catheters
  • I.V cannulae lines
  • Nasal oxygen lines
  • Duodenal and nasal feeding tubes
  • Urinary catheters
  • Eye protection during surgery
  • Endotracheal tubation
  • Haemodialysis catheterisation
  • Umbilical catheters
  • Epidural catheters

There are many reasons for securing a tube or medical device to the body and some considerations include:

  • Need for cushioning under the device
  • Strong anchoring preventing accidental removal
  • Reduction of infection risk
  • Inspection of puncture site
  • Extended life of device due to less changes required

Electro-medical Products

Advances in electro-medical diagnostics have resulted in a huge level of demand for self-adhesive electrode patches in a wide variety of high-specification materials. With our global reach of leading-brand materials such as PE and EVA foams, non-woven materials, hydrogels and conductive adhesives we can meet the demands required in this critical field.

Applications include:

  • Diagnostic instruments
  • Monitoring instruments
  • Grounding/earthing applications
  • Therapeutic devices
  • Iontophoresis
  • Pulse oximetry

A number of specific requirements have to be considered in meeting design criteria for electrode pads. Our team of R&D specialists will work closely with you to ensure the product is fit for purpose and at the cutting edge in terms of its technology. We fast track your design from prototype to full-scale production.
