Leveraging decades of experience in adhesives and electronic materials, the company is poised to offer innovative solutions that optimize medical devices and processes for improved patient outcomes and remote tracking and diagnostics.

The paradigm shift from hospital care to remote home care has created a need for smaller, more reliable and environmentally protected devices, all while ensuring patient safety and comfort. Henkel’s expertise in materials engineering has facilitated the design and manufacture of cutting-edge medical devices that streamline diagnostics and enhance the quality of care and life for both caregivers and patients.

Henkel’s expanded portfolio encompasses a range of high-performance materials applicable to various wearable devices across the entire value chain.
