Whitepaper: MEDIFIX Long-Term Wear Solutions for device fixation

Scapa Healthcare evaluated the wear duration of acrylic adhesives for medical device fixation on healthy human volunteers.

In 2015 we evaluated different formulations of acrylic adhesives combined with various substrates for optimal long-term wear solutions for medical device fixation. 

In a second study, we evaluated the most promising adhesive from our initial study against five altered formulations of the incumbent acrylic adhesive and various substrates. The study identified a long-wear adhesive for wearable medical device fixation lasting up to 16.5 days.
