It is much easier to make changes in the beginning rather than make costly fixes later in the development.
Over a three-part blog series I will go over the dos and don’ts when developing a skin-worn wearable medical device and the science of sticking to skin. This first blog explains the dos of skin-worn medical device design and development.
