Improve Patient Recovery

Wearable Medical Devices, Biosensors, and Monitoring Patches improve patient recovery with increased monitoring of prescribed activities, vitals and other health events. This data combined with new software and artificial intelligence improves diagnosis accuracy and speed as well as increases the efficiency, convenience, customization and cost management of healthcare. Wearable patches and biosensors commonly include Glucose Monitors, Insulin Pumps, Cardiac Monitor Patches, ECG Monitoring Patch, or Medical Patches like those used for Sleep Monitoring. Boyd’s expertise in clean room manufacturing, material expertise, and strategic supplier partnerships helps support your medical wearable device design and fabrication. Partnering with Boyd results in streamlined FDA compliant wearable devices designed for patient comfort and safety, healthcare provider efficiency, high reliability, and total cost management.

Selecting the Right Materials and Using Innovative Manufacturing

Wearable Medical Devices combine reliable biosensors and digital connectivity in an easy to use, comfortable, and format safe for patient use. By selecting the right materials and using innovative manufacturing and assembly processes that exceed medical regulations and requirements, these high-tech, affordable solutions bring health care to the next level. Each component requires careful material selection to optimize both performance and cost.

Cover layers must balance breathability for patient skin comfort as well as waterproofing to protect electronics. Cushioning layers must protect electrical connections without adding excessive weight or rigidity. Batteries, PCBs, and flexible circuits must operate reliably with minimal complexity. Hydrogels must provide reliable signal conductivity, withstand intended wear time, and be comfortable and safe for skin-contact.
