They are great beats the ones Medtronic use hands down, I had a lot of problems with sweat when working now I don't, a great product.
These have changed the game for me. I will definitely be a return customer.
What a great product
Pity that the company that supplies the sensor and transmitter patches don't stick.
I ordered two packs of patches on a whim, without a clear idea of how I was going to use them. Having now figured it out, I am happy to say that I am using them to anchor both the Guardian sensor and the infusion set. I can shower with much more confidence and can disguise the sensor if I wish. I love this product!
Like the patches as they stay on but postage is an issue for me as it takes weeks to get here
Your patches were recommended by one of my care team. I was a bit hesitant as I have tried similar patches before which fell off less than 48 hours after being put on. I am so glad I decided to give your patches a try though. They are awesome, won’t be going anywhere else.
Swim or sweat they never come off
Fantastic product. Even though it says not for sensitive skin I thought I would give it a try. The sensor manufacturers tapes cause me huge red and itching welts under the tape. Another tape brand causes itching and peels slowly away before the sensor needs to come off. Type-Strong has not caused any itching and holds for the full 7 days needed as long as its put on properly in the first place. I highly recommend these as the best I have had.
Love the patch. Excellent quality. Leave the patch style the same just no glue on the centre section for replacing purposes as it leaves a really sticky residue on the sensor. Best on the market and I have tried quite a few
I’ve tried a bunch of adhesive patches and bandages and all would come off me after a good session in the garden or when working out. Type Strong patches stay on for 7 days everytime, without fail - even when I don’t apply them correctly! Highly recommend
The best. Never had one fail. Even swimming doesn’t affect them. Return customer for sure.
Certainly makes life that bit easier not having to remove the sticky stuff from my transmitter!!….a great product….thank you ☺️
The 1st 2 patches didn’t stick real good (back of arm) edges started lifting and looked very ratty but the next few have been ok (upper thigh) but better then other tapes I’ve tried so will continue to use them!
Love the way it doesn’t stick to your skin and machine when you pull them off
Have recommended it to so many others
All the best for the festive season
I love these patches! They are so much easier to use than what is included with the CGM, tough and water proof. And they last as long as they are needed. Highly recommended to anyone who uses as CGM.
They are so easy to use, adhere well and don't irritate the skin at all! Plus the patches I use are skin coloured and blend in well around the stomach area- not that I flash my tum in a bikini anymore :-(
Recently bought the strips on recommendation of an enthusiastic user. They are great, stay fixed and waterproof for the required 14 days, and are easily removed at time of replacement.
Works super well, no skin irritation at all. Last the entire seven days no dramas at all !
Not sticky enough. May as well of saved my money and kept using tapes in pack
They are great easy to put on and take off
They stay on longer than the ones provided
Fabulous easy to apply patches. I have tape sensitivities which is why I switched to these patches with no issues at all Plus I love the colour choice
Having the one patch makes a heap of difference when changing the sensor..the patches supplied with the sensor are useless so your product has made our life much easier..it would be great if you supplied the skin glue as the company who supply it are not great to deal with.
An absolute must with the diabetic sensors. Wonderful!
Great support team with our distributor of the patches.
Just what I was looking for! Great in the ocean and protects the Sensor very well!
satisfied with my purchase, perfect and lasts longer. Will be purchasing more.
I love the patches, they so easy to use and they do not irritate my skin at all.
Ryan was very helpful when I reported that I had not received the patches. Turned out to be an Australia Post problem but I very much appreciated his investigation that helped locate my order
I have just returned from a golf trip to Thailand. The heat,humidity, sweat and swimming was no match for my new best friend...THE TYPE STRONG BANDAGE...
These are terrific! They don't come off until they are removed, no matter what activities you do.
Like the product but it took so long to get here I possibly won’t order them again.
The type strong are fantastic. I am rather round and they stick well and cover my sensor. They do not come off until I take it off
The best on the market. Love them for my son. Flexible soft strong keeps the sensor in place all week and next of all doesn't hurt or leave red marks
My 4 year old type 1 son had suffered severe allergic reactions to the tape provided from Medtronic so we tried numerous different companies nothing worked. As a last resort we decided to try the type strong and it has been an absolute game changer for us he has zero reaction to this adhesive!!
These are the best patches I’ve found. Played a game of football on the muddiest oval I’ve ever seen and it stayed on without a hitch, Haven’t had one not last the week.
These patches are amazing:
Easy to put on!
And easy to get off because adhesive remover soaks right in so I don’t cry on removal anymore!
Plus now they come in purple which is my favourite colour
Having used with FreeStyle Libre and now with Medtronic sensors the patches eliminate the risk of the sensors being dislodged.
These work so well to keep my infusion sets on,being of menopause age an the sticky on sets kept coming off till I used these excellent product just wish pink was in stock
Cannot believe how good they are. Easy to apply. No rash which is a real bonus. Now need to order a coloured one!
I do not use the patch but I assist my wife Sandra (76 years Type 1 diabetic) to install CGM sensor into her upper arm and tape same with a Strong patch. Because of the cuts in the protection over the sticky side of the patch, it's much easier to remove the protection than any other patch we have used and hence much easier to form the patch over the sensor. Laurence (Laurie)
Theyre great mate. Simple to apply and no messy clean~up of skin area or sensor.
These are great!!! They are long lasting and don’t leave nasty itchy rashes on my skin. LOVE THEM
We have tried so many different types of adhesives to keep my 11yr old boys CGM where it should be. These are by far the BEST
My skin reacted badly to the CGM patches and I was ready to give up on CGM until my diabetes educator put me on to Type-strong, couldn’t be more impressed.
The patches are great. As someone with vision impairment they stop me knocking my sensor on doorways etc and i can sleep knowing It won’t dislodge
They stick! But they don't last a week!
I started having a reaction to a different brand that I had been using for ages and so far these have been amazing! No itchy, sore skin or rash left behind, actually stay on for the full 7 days without any edges starting to lift! I will definitely be buying again! Very impressed.
Best one I have ever tried. Easy to put on and stays in place.
They are great Skin coloured and they do not ITCH
The type strong patches are great, seem to stick to my skin for the entire periods I have my infusion sets on , waterproof and no reaction with my skin.
Glad I was recommended this product.
I buy regularly now to have spare patches.
They stay in place & remove easily at the end of the week without leaving a big glue patch on my arm. Don't cause a rash in the heat.

The best patches I have used!
Type Strong CGM patches are the best I have used. They are a good size and don’t lift or peel at all.
They come away from the the skin easily when it’s time to remove and don’t irritate my skin.
I’ll be purchasing these regularly.
Great service and perfect Patches
I really love those patches, because they are super protective and perfect for a sensitive skin. I love the colors and they are really easy to apply.
Who would have thunk…
…that a sticky patch could make such a difference? News a CGM, I found the supplied sticky things very fiddle. My educator suggested these and it made an instant impact.makes life just that much easier. Cheers!
If you thinking of ordering these patches do it now!!
I wear a Medtronic Guardian 3 sensor and I have had trouble trying to attach them with the adhesive patches they provide.
I have been using fixamol but after a few days my skin becomes allergic to it. When I saw these patches advertised I was a bit sceptic, but decided to give them a try.
They really are amazing and so easy to use, they do not come away from the skin at all even when wet and hold my sensor in place perfectly.
I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough.
Great patches! Hold my guardian sensor safe and secure all week
I bought these on recommendation of my lovely educator, and they have been the best thing!
These are the best patches I have ever used, and don't make my skin reacts (like the ones that come with the guardian sensors do!).
My favourite is the skin colour, blends in for me on my arm.
Fantastic for sensitive skin
My partner found these after watching me cutting up rockTape before going for a workout. Standard Medtronic tape and many other medical tapes caused irritation after a few days. I only use Type Strong patches now, fantastic product, easy to throw one in a work bag & awesome customer service. If there’s any issues Ryan is very easy to reach out to. Won’t buy any other patch again. 5/5 highly recommended.
Stick well but not correct fit for Medtronic CGM
I have a Medtronic CGM and even though I purchased the patch for that product the piece in the centre is not correct shape for Guardian sensor and transmitter.Why isn't the prouct made with correct fit? I'm very happy with the way the product sticks but think the instructions on how to fit for Guardian CGMs is very poor
Patches are strong and not itchy....
My daughter loves these patches, she is not reacting and isn't scratching, this is fantastic. The patches are strong and durable, would highly recommend.
I had loads of trouble with the small, round sensor cover section. Medtronic sensors aren’t round. There is no way to use these patches without it sticking to some part of the Medtronic sensor. Not thrilled I bought two packs of these. If they had a shell-shaped sensor cover these would be great
Easier to apply, durable and easier on the skin.
These patches are great !!!
Love these patches!!!!!!!
Patches are the right size. Have had the first one on for 6 days and it looks like the minute I put it on. Very happy with these patches. Would recommend them to anyone.
Worked very well n was still securely stuck after a fortnight .. money well spent
Patches are working so well on my sweaty, footy loving 10 year old. I have had so much trouble with other patches peeling, damaging his skin and not lasting the distance of the sensor…. But these are doing the trick! My sons only request was for next time i purchase them could I see if I can buy a pack with mixed colours, he has had enough of the blue!
Love my New Patches!
I recently purchased the Type Strong patches for my Medtronic CGM. I love them! I bought the tan colour which blend in with my skin colour far better than the transmitter colour does. It sticks very well to my skin for the whole 7 days. The only thing that I find a little tricky is removing the second half tag, but I'm gradually getting better at it. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. Thanks Type Strong!
Fantastic Type Strong
A great sturdy cover for my CGM.
Dries quickly after a shower and maintains the “stickiness” and does not come off!
Greatest product since the CGM.
I purchase the trail offer first , and it work great for me . As I play agolf and use the Gym regularly and no problems with the sensor and transmitter,last the seven days .
The patch secures everthing in place ,no problems with it. A very neat patch when secured to the body .
Patch has been fantastic no peeling on any of the edges have worn it for 7 days and due to change out my sensor, it performs well and no issues when playing sport.
4 out of 5 stars
I have tried every patch and tape available on the market at this stage and am always looking for the perfect FIVE STARS.
These guys are a very high FOUR. They lose a star because I don't think the small 'non-stick dot' is big enough to cover my Guardian Sensor without pulling the sensor out with one-handed tape removal.
I'm allergic to most types of tape and I've had zero reaction to this tape. I like that it doesn't fray at the edges and look messy. I love that the overall size is small - it has perfect coverage! It stays put for the full time I need it to stay put - seven days. It is also easy to take off. It has a good amount of stretch too, which is handy for locations that tend to move a bit. It handles water well (just wait an hour or so before getting it wet), and the colour holds up too. I've started to decorate mine prior to using them, for a bit of something different :)
NOTE: TS can not be reattached after being lifted/removed.
I'm one of the fortunate few who rarely seem to get a skin reaction from the standard Medtronic tapes.
However after a few hot, sweaty and soggy days at the beach, the Medtronic ones started to lift.
I'd researched a few other companies and tried a sample of another brand, which started to lift off less than 24 hours after putting in place.
I'm on my second Type Strong one now and it seems to hold up perfectly. It hasn't budged and the old one was still super sticky when I removed it.
Great product, well executed and well priced. Even with covid postage, very quick delivery and would have no hesitation buying more.
Love this product - so good
My daughter is 16 and absolutely loves these type strong medtronic patches. She has always struggled with other patches on her skin or falling off but these patches are sensitive to her skin, can be used in many ways and stay on strong ensuring her sensor is not ripped out. Highly recommended.
These are awesome!
These patches are simply the best! I’ve tried so many different tapes, wraps and covers in order to try to keep my CGM securely stuck down and protected for the lifespan of a sensor. I have a very active lifestyle and train almost every day. So most of the time either the adhesive holding down my sensor would come loose, or, I would develop super irritated skin that would itch to the point where I would have to change sites early. I saw these patches online and decided to give them a shot, and they are amazing! They are flexible and comfortable, but strong enough to hold my sensor securely in place which means I never have to worry about it during exercise. Also, since using these my skin has been completely fine at sensor sites - no rash, no blisters, no unbearably itchy skin! Type Strong patches have defiantly become a permanent fixture in my diabetic kit.
A must try!!
Absolutely love these patches! Not only do they hold the sensor in place, it isn’t uncomfortable and the nude colour looks like nothing is even on your arm. Much prefer these over the normal Medtronic patches
I’ve always had issues with my CGM falling off and my skin reacting to the overtape it comes with and other tapes that i tried. These patches work so well, stay on for the whole week and cause no reaction! I’m very very happy with them.
I have really sensitive skin and was getting to the point that I’d dread sensor changes and the red marks and skin breakages the tape would leave behind. I decided to give the Type Strong patches a go and they’ve completely changed my experience! No more fiddling around trying to clean the sticky stuff off my transmitter and no more red broken skin after removing tape. I’d recommend these to everyone! They easily last a week but are so gentle you could change them more frequently if you wanted to. I’m happy to recommend these to everyone.
These patches changed our lives !!!
Hi there I just wanted to say thank you. We had spent thousands of dollars trying to find a product that my daughter wasn’t allergic to. We tried all the sprays all the patches all the tape all the white everything you name it all the clear skin covers and nothing worked . We even got stuff from the uk . We brought medical tape all tape we could but , all patches so much money and I was about to give up as they blister my daughter (she can not even have alcohol wipes ) And I saw these and thought I’ll give it one more try and try something new and I have just changed her patch after a week and in the first few days she didn’t have any itching or anything so we left it and just put it off and it did not leave a mark so I want to thank you so so much from the bottom of my heart this is really help my daughter those patches are absolutely amazing and they have really changed our lives. I have told all my friends and shit on all the diabetic group about them because they are just marvellous. Best money I’ve be spent and I will be back buying more . No more suffering for my daughter :)
I have always struggled with keeping my sensors on, without using a tape that I get some sort of adverse reaction to like a rash or swelling, with these patches, it has made my life so much easier! Super simple to put on and they hold up amazingly throughout my busy week, in and out of the water, intense cardio workouts, and even of course bumping into door frames as we all do! I've never had anything hold up as well as these patches and leave my skin happy during and after. I love the design, nice and sleek, the black is a personal fave as it works with my all black work uniform but there are plenty of other colour choices to spice it up a bit. Finally I don't have to buy endless rolls of tape that never stays stuck. Just about to buy a fresh pack!
Best patches I’ve ever used!
The TypeStrong Medtronic CGM patches are by far the best patches I’ve ever used. I usually get reactions to most cgm tapes but after trialling these patches on multiple occasions, not once have I gotten a reaction from them! They are super easy to apply and their innovative design is seamless. The design allows me the option to take off the patch and put a new one on without the sensor budging. But in saying that I can easily have one of these patches on for a week and they do not lift at all! They sit super flat on the skin and are barely noticed when wearing tight fitting clothes. The range of colours available ensures there is something for everyone, if that be a more discrete look by using the skin toned ones or something more out there like the blue (my new personal favourite). I highly recommend these patches!
