  • Applying perception science to wearable medical device design

    The experience of pain and discomfort highly motivates behavior and people will go to great lengths to avoid it. Medical wearables have the ability to transform lives provided they are willing to use them. Discover how the perception of pain and discomfort can guide the creation of wearable devices that are comfortable to wear and painless to remove.

  • Stick to skin: a new way for medical wearables (PDF, 179.71 KB)

    Wearables are wonders — they have the power to enhance human health simply by connecting technology to skin. Medical wearables play a key role in enablement of positive care outcomes and help simplify care management – changing patient quality of life for the better. But when it comes to designing an effective wearable device, numerous considerations must be taken into account. In this paper, we will go “under the skin” to examine the factors that impact performance, including the science of skin and adhesion and how to make devices stick.

  • 100+ years of "Sticky Science"

    Formulating and applying adhesives has been a core 3M technology since we started in business back in 1902. Today, 3M Medical Materials and Technologies offers a wide range of medical-grade tape, adhesive and film components used by medical device manufacturers around the world. This includes “skin-friendly” medical materials, intended for direct patient contact, and more aggressive medical-grade tapes, adhesives and closures used in the actual construction of medical devices made from plastic films, foams and fabrics.

    By bringing in 3M at the product conception stage, you can take advantage of this expertise to potentially speed up your design process – with solutions that can help improve device reliability, enhance performance and reduce costs. At the same time, you gain access to 3M’s technology portfolio — allowing you to expand your design options— as well as resources that include manufacturing guidance, global supply chain capabilities, product testing and clinical support. Whatever product development stage you’re at, we’re ready to help you succeed – by delivering great science with a personal touch.


When you are designing a medical device that must attach to a patient’s skin, a lot depends on your choice of adhesive system. How long will the device remain on the patient? Does it need to be conformable? What skin types or conditions will be encountered? Will the adhesive be compatible with both your materials of construction and the patient? Should the adhesive be medical grade?
