Beneli develops wearable and stretchable printed electronics patch

In a world facing increasing health challenges, the need for innovative med tech solutions has never been more critical. Beneli AB, which is considered to be at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, as a renowned supplier of printed electronics, recognised the challenges faced by healthcare suppliers when it comes to stick-to-skin solutions. In response, they embarked on a journey to design a revolutionary adhesive medical patch – the Gemini Patch.

Traditional medical monitoring devices often pose discomfort and limitations in terms of wearability. Bulky sensors, adhesive issues, and inflexible designs have left much to be desired, hindering the adoption of continuous monitoring solutions. Beneli AB recognised these issues and sought to address them by innovating a wearable solution that would redefine patient monitoring.

Designing the solution

The design process began with a meticulous study of what was actually needed. It was marked by numerous cycles of refinement, iterations and challenges. According to the team, prototyping felt like stepping through a succession of doors, each unveiling fresh challenges. Throughout, they maintained a constant process of reevaluation, testing, and fine-tuning of their design, carefully balancing the needs and challenges with the choice of materials, adhesive strength, and the final functionality of the solution.

To create a truly transformative product, the Beneli team formed by Amro Abu Zarour and Andreas Lindberg knew that the wearable device had to be both functional and comfortable. The team set out to create a wearable that could adapt to the body’s contours without causing discomfort. This led to the development of a stretchable patch, maintaining contact with the skin even during movement and various activities. The stretchable design ensures that the patch adheres securely while also allowing for comfortable wear over extended periods.

The utilisation of the right electrodes allowed for versatile applications. Selecting the right materials was essential in achieving the desired functions, and yet each use case will have a unique design of materials and shape. “We’re proud to be at the forefront of wearable medical technology. The future of wearable medical technology holds the promise of transforming healthcare as we know it, seamlessly integrating data-driven insights into our daily lives and empowering individuals to improve their well-being like never before,” said Beneli’s CEO, Henric Ungh.

A leap forward

Beneli AB’s stretchable patch marks a significant leap forward in the realm of wearable medical technology. By addressing the challenges and needs of patients and healthcare providers, this innovative solution promises to redefine the mass-producing market of wearable stretchable patches. According to Beneli, with its design, stretchability, dry electrodes, adaptable electrode options, and commitment to patient comfort, the future of patient care is looking brighter than ever.

As Ungh concludes, “Our commitment to creating a healthier, more comfortable future for patients remains steadfast. The stretchable ultrathin Gemini patch is a testament to our dedication to improving top-of-the-line printed electronics, we will always strive to be in the forefront of new technology and this stretchable patch with dry electrodes is just the beginning of what we can achieve.”
