Skin friendly fixation, haptic, design, cost conscious / R2R
In many cases, chronic diseases need permanent monitoring and treatment at the same time. New medical technologies like wearable electronic patches give patients higher mobility. But permanent skin contact and fixation is an extraordinary challenge for the human skin. Skin friendliness (no sensitization) but safe fixation, design, haptic and acceptable cost are achievable with the right choice of materials and production technologies. Manufacturer of high-tech polymer materials for key industries Covestro, is introducing soft electronic embedding on R2R technology + skin friendly fixation – high performance materials for maximum wearing comfort.

Electronic components for Wearable and IoT applications  
Specialists in European semiconductor distribution EBV Elektronik adds value at all stages of a customers' supply chain. Services range from in-depth design expertise and application know-how through value-added services right up to full logistics solutions. The disciplines of sensor technology, data preparation and data processing, data output, actuator engineering, connectivity and security come together in the Internet of Things – and EBV has been continuously active in all these areas for over a decade.

A holistic view on a product´s life cycle – development and manufacturing of secure wearables and solutions for patient monitoring
In healthcare and medical technology, wearable electronic devices offer a wide range of uses. Under everyday conditions and with no undue loss of comfort, these devices record vital parameters, analyze them and make them available to medical personnel for diagnosis. Kontron electronics, a provider of secure hardware, middleware and services for IoT and Industry 4.0, works closely with its customers to develop and manufacture innovative medical devices, body wearables and portables, and to ensure secure connectivity for these products.

Revolutionizing the Textile Interface
Being the largest apparel manufacturer in South Asia, MAS Holdings operated along the intersection of fashion, lifestyle and technology. Consumer centric design has helped them juxtapose aesthetics with function and due to advancements of traditional apparel manufacturing processes (bonding, knitting, sewing etc.), they have acquired skillsets and capabilities for advanced engineered textiles.

Health Applications of Sports Wearables
Wearable technology developed for sports has a large usage potential in the health sector. Movesense, Suunto’s open sensor development platform for motion sensing and biometrics, is accelerating the expansion of sports wearables into the health market. With their solutions they are serving the need of a low-cost, lightweight wearable sensor for health monitoring and management.

A technology platform to enable wearable health
Quad Industries is specializing in the development and manufacturing of user interfaces and control panels for both consumer and industrial applications and has extended their activities in developing and manufacturing printed, flexible sensor solutions. Together with Henkel and Byteflies, Quad Industries has developed a smart health patch, worn 24/7 and continuously measuring and recording motion (IMU), electrocardiogram (ECG) and respiration (RES).

Securely and wirelessly connect patients with caregivers
Our world is moving fast, soon you will carry your doctor in your pocket. u‑blox is setting the beat delivering the core technology to locate and wirelessly connect people, machines and everything else. Together with their partner Leikr, they are introducing a cryptograhically encrypted and power-efficient wearable eHealth gateway with LTE-M, NB-IoT and BLE connectivity.

Human-friendly man-machine interface
Xenoma develops the next-generation smart apparel ‘e-skin’ as a human-friendly man-machine interface. Their proprietary process integrates sensors and devices comfortably into circuits on fabric called Printed Circuit Fabric (PCF). The technology can be used in various fields and applications.

Commercialization, Manufacturing and Development of Biosensors and Printed Electronics
Zimmer and Peacock see that sensors are a critical part of a number of Social and Commercial Revolutions, including the Internet of Things (IoT), Sensor Web and the growth of the Invitro Diagnostics Market (IVD).  The company is partnering with academia and industry to ensure that there are enough good and commercially available sensors to meet the requirements of these new and growing markets.

The above listed companies will present their exciting innovations at the WT | Wearable Technologies Show MEDICA on Nov 18-21 in Hall 13 Booth D46.
