Strong medical tapes adhere well to the skin and different devices, however require a lot of effort to remove properly and cause medical adhesive related skin injuries (MARSIs) if done incorrectly. The goal of the UnTape project is to create a medical device, and tape that adheres strongly but is removed easily and without discomfort when desired. We will design, fabricate, and test a custom wand that will rapidly activate the photo-sensitive tape that includes active thermal feedback control of IR light, that also has 3-color LED power indicators to the user.
