Use CGM patches from TRUETAPE® correctly

For optimal durability and comfort, it is best to apply your sensor patch according to our recommendations. The application takes only about 3 minutes and you proceed as follows:

Preparation and Tips

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

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

For better adhesion, trim the hair if it is very hairy.

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 patch to injured or irritated skin and do not jerk it off the skin.

Gently peel the patch from the skin at one point. Hold the skin under tension with one hand and then pull the patch off slowly, at a shallow angle and in the direction of hair growth (this usually means away from the center of the body). Please never jerk it off to protect the skin. Once the skin is clean again, you can apply a new patch as described above.
