Trends in wearable technology follow those of the broader biomedical and electronics industries — devices are getting smaller, smarter, and easier to use. Wearables in healthcare have moved toward solutions that reduce the device profile, provide more integration with smartphone apps, and most importantly enable patients to receive their treatments at home instead of in a doctor's office. To fully evaluate all aspects of these devices, rigorous mechanical testing is required. This 30-minute Webinar will break down five different ways to test and evaluate these wearable devices.
- Trends in wearable technology
- Overview of mechanical testing for wearable devices
- Complete functional device testing to ISO 11608
- Peel and tack testing of medical-grade adhesives
An audience Q&A will follow the technical presentation.
