Bio2Skin, a novel biomaterial for medical skin adhesives

Project description

Smart, glue-less adhesives for medical use

Medical-grade adhesives and wound dressings are widely used nowadays. However, adhesives used in medical devices are synthetic and often cause dermatitis or even injuries when they are peeled off. The EU-funded Bio2Skin project aims to develop products that are healthy and safe for human skin. They will also protect skin against medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI). It will be based on novel revolutionary materials such as the glue-less, highly biocompatible, chemically modified polymers that do not damage the skin and offer fine adhesion properties. First tests of the product are very promising for the medical adhesive market.
