Avery Dennison Medical, a supplier of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) materials for medical applications, will exhibit a wide range of wound care, medical wearables, personal care and connected healthcare solutions at the 2022 Medica Trade show Nov. 14-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Exhibiting in Hall 6, Booth H07, Avery Dennison Medical will be joined by partners from the Avery Dennison Smartrac RFID and Personal Care divisions. Together they will highlight products including “smart” medical devices, repositionable adhesives, wearable adhesive materials and moisture-sensing incontinence diapers. Rolled goods, converted components, finished goods and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions will be on display, with samples readily available upon request for most products.
“We are focused on making it easy for medical device OEMs and converters to identify the right materials, components and processes to make their products, from design specification to delivery,” said Martin Dowd, EU general manager, Avery Dennison Medical. “Like our converter and OEM customers, Avery Dennison is committed to the ongoing challenges of enhancing patient comfort and care while delivering a simpler, more efficient and cost-effective experience for healthcare providers.”
Avery Dennison Medical is embracing a Medica theme of “Design. Develop. Deliver.” The company will highlight innovations including high-tack soft silicone adhesives (SSA) designed to offer increased skin adhesion while being gentle on removal. Silicone roll goods also will be on display, including a light coat weight easy-tear tape, which can be torn across all directions, giving clinicians greater flexibility and easier handling. RFID innovations will include track-and-trace solutions to help prevent counterfeiting and tampering and “condition sensing” technologies to connect medical devices with smart phone apps for greater patient and healthcare provider empowerment. A wide range of adhesives for wearable applications also will be available, demonstrating capabilities for short to extended wear times.
