A conceptual, innovative, wearable and stretchable printed electronics patch for Stick-to-Skin Medical Applications
In a world facing increasing health challenges, the need for innovative med tech solutions has never been more critical. Beneli AB, at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, a world class supplier of printed electronics recognized the challenges faced by health care suppliers when it comes to stick to skin medical patch solutions. In response, they embarked on a journey to design a revolutionary adhesive stick to skin medical patch – the Gemini Patch.
Challenges and the Need
Traditional medical monitoring devices often pose discomfort and limitations in terms of wearability. Bulky sensors, adhesive issues, and inflexible designs have left much to be desired, hindering the adoption of continuous monitoring solutions. Beneli AB recognized these issues and sought to address them by innovating a wearable solution that would redefine patient monitoring.
Designing the Solution
The design process began with a meticulous study of what was actually needed. The design process was marked by numerous cycles of refinement, iterations and challenges. Prototyping felt like stepping through a succession of doors, each unveiling fresh challenges. Throughout, we maintained a constant process of reevaluation, testing, and fine-tuning of our design, carefully balancing the needs and challenges with the choice of materials, adhesive strength, and the final functionality of the solution.
To create a truly transformative product, a Beneli team formed by Amro Abu Zarour and Andreas Lindberg knew that the wearable device had to be both functional and comfortable.
Shape and Stretchability
The team at Beneli set out to create a wearable that could adapt to the body’s contours without causing discomfort. This led to the development of a stretchable patch,maintaining contact with the skin even during movement and various activities. The stretchable design ensures that the patch adheres securely while also allowing for comfortable wear over extended periods.
Choice of materials & Electrodes
The utilization of the right electrodes allowed for versatile applications.
Selecting the right materials was essential in achieving the desired functions, and yet each use case will have a unique design of materials and shape.
We’re proud to be at the forefront of wearable medical technology. The future of wearable medical technology holds the promise of transforming healthcare as we know it, seamlessly integrating data-driven insights into our daily lives and empowering individuals to improve their well-being like never before.Amro Abu Zarour – Project Manager
