New Bandage Is Cost Efficient, Features Reusable Parts

Over the last several years, researchers across the world have been developing a series of smart bandages. These state-of-the-art bandages make use of cutting-edge technology to improve wound care outcomes. One such option, created by a team from the University of Texas at Arlington, can transmit read-outs to doctors on individual wounds. Another equally innovative bandage uses special software to predict bedsores before they reach critical state. Some bandages, like one from a group at Northwestern University, feature a patented blend of proteins and polymers to aid wound healing. Now, another intriguing new smart bandage has emerged courtesy of a group from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia.
