The special advantages of our Sensorpatches

We have put a lot of thought into making sure you can live confidently with your sensor in all situations.


1. Your sensor lasts longer

Our patch extends the wearing time of your sensor and protects it, no matter what you are up to in your life. The patch lasts 7-14 days on the skin.


Your application guide

For optimal durability and comfort, it is best to apply your patch according to our recommendations. The application takes only about 3 minutes if you follow these steps:

Apply the patch at least 1-2 hours before starting an activity or water contact.

Thoroughly remove dirt, moisture, oils or lotions from the skin before taping.

In areas that are particularly hairy, trim the hair to ensure the tape sticks better.

When applying the patch, do not touch the adhesive surface if possible, as it will affect the adhesion.

If any part of the patch comes off the skin, it can be carefully removed with scissors.

Do not apply the patch to injured or irritated skin and do not tear it off the skin jerkily.
