PolarSeal Tapes and Conversions, a leading contract medical device manufacturer and adhesive converter, will now provide cost-effective and bespoke solutions for US’ wearable medical device market.

PolarSeal launches advanced in-house converting capabilities for adhesive tapes and medical grade materials to co-design and manufacture wearable medical devices in the US, and deliver innovative stick-to-skin solutions. 

PolarSeal ensures adhesives and product materials are skin-friendly, absorbent, repositionable, and sterile. Breathable or non-breathable constructions ensure products are functional and comfortable.

Quality, cost-effective wearable medical devices enable better diagnosis and treatment of those diagnosed with, or at risk for, diabetes by pairing advanced technology with stick-to-skin adhesives for effective patient monitoring. They save and transmit data used by other medical devices or for analysis by medical professionals.

With 26.9 million Americans (CDC National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020) of all ages (8.2% of the population) having diagnosed diabetes and 88 million more Americans at risk for Type 2 diabetes (CDC Newsroom, 2021), wearable medical device technology for early detection and monitoring of diabetes can significantly change patient outcomes.

86% of 500 patients using prescribed wearable medical devices (Business Wire) agreed that their devices improved their health, quality of life, and enabled doctors to provide higher quality care. 

North America occupies the largest market share for wearable medical devices with ongoing expansion, primarily due to the increase in obesity nationwide. Demand for patient monitoring devices for the geriatric population has also increased, as wearable devices are relied upon to diagnose and treat issues associated with this group. The global wearable healthcare devices market is expected to reach USD 93.48 billion by 2030 (Research and Markets). 

Medical professionals rely on wearable device solutions to pair advanced technology, high-quality materials and innovative adhesives for effective patient monitoring. Patients on the other hand want a comfortable, easy-to-use and minimally obtrusive device that doesn’t interfere with daily life.
