Skin Grip Debuts MAX High-performance Diabetic Sensor Tape
Skin Grip creates adhesives that keep diabetic devices in place on the skin. Their new ultra-durable, non-fraying MAX patches support a higher level of performance and aesthetics.

Skin Grip, which creates adhesives for securing diabetic sensors to the skin, rolled out their Skin Grip MAX patches on August 22. These high-performance, non-fraying patches provide next-level durability, comfort, and style for diabetics.
Like Skin Grip’s original tape for diabetic sensors, MAX patches anchor CGMs (continuous glucose monitors) and insulin pumps to the skin so diabetics can lead an active lifestyle without worrying about losing their devices. But the MAX patches introduce a whole new grade of performance, staying in place through the most rigorous workouts without fraying or lifting. The patches also lead out in aesthetics, providing a smaller, more discreet patch than the original.
“If you don’t want anything distracting from your elegant, sleeveless ball gown at a gala event, this patch is for you. If you are a high-performance athlete sweating profusely or a swimmer or triathlete spending a lot of time in the water, this patch is also for you. There is nothing like it for both appearance and endurance,” said Isaac Parkinson, Skin Grip Founder and CEO.
Parkinson launched Skin Grip after watching his brother struggle with the difficult realities of his diabetes diagnosis — including the hassle and expense of replacing diabetic devices when they fell off of his skin and broke or got lost.
“They can fall off so easily with daily activities, and especially when you’re working out,” said Parkinson. “This makes it hard to lead an active lifestyle with diabetes.”
Parkinson invites people with diabetes to “live fearlessly” thanks to the assurance provided by super-strong Skin Grip adhesives. The new MAX adhesives can be worn for 14 days. They resist moisture and provide a 4-way stretch that allows the patches to stay in place in spite of friction and heavy movement.
The first wave of MAX adhesive patches for Freestyle Libre 2 and Dexcom G6 CGMs are available in tan and black for US customers. Customers in the EU and UK can purchase them starting on September 5. The patches are made in the U.S.A from cutting-edge, fray-resistant materials.
The MAX patches’ strong grip could irritate sensitive skin, so users who are prone to inflammation are advised to stick to the original versions. To learn more about the MAX patches or to see how they help active-lifestyle diabetics live without limits, visit www.SkinGrip.com.
