Printed Electronics Enabling Sensing Technologies in Absorbent Hygiene Solutions: Mastering ecosystems and printed sensor design

There is a growing demand for medical and hygiene solutions that support caregivers by enabling real-time health monitoring. Integrating printed sensing technologies in essential hygiene products for adults and infants significantly improves quality of care and life. Successful implementation of printed sensing technologies in hygienic products requires innovation and teamwork. Bringing together material suppliers, IoT partners and printing experts in a global collaborative network is key to successful product design and operational execution.

When data, material knowledge and industry expertise paired with agile development are equally important to succeed, you want to work with global partners supporting your creative innovation process and efficient implementation alike. This talk shares insights into leveraging 40 years of Henkel Printed Electronics experience and work in ecosystems for smart hygiene product design. This talk will focus on what is important in project setup and management in this field and how Henkel LOCTITE conductive inks can be used to create printed sensing technology.
