Have you heard about smart bandages before?
Well, this is the kind of bandage that has the ability to detect how speedily a hound is healing and sends a progress report to the doctor. Yes, it is true and this incredible technology will be exposed to the market from next year according to the scientists.
Let’s talk about how it works!
The entire bandage is occupied with very tiny sensors which are tailor-made to pick blood clotting and identity infections. And, it all gets done wirelessly.
Swansea University is the origin of these data driven bandages and hoping to make its first trial by the next year.
All in all, it would turn out to be an amazing help for physicians to customize treatments based on the progress of your wound. For instance, if you are healing well, you will be provided with a solution in accordance with your condition.
Prof Marc Clement, chairman of the Institute of Life Science at Swansea said: “This is a multi-technology approach, with nanotechnology, nanoelectronics, printing and coating biochemistry all interconnecting through 5G infrastructure to allow us tomorrow and in the future to deliver health care for a wound patient that delivers better patient outcomes and better quality of life.”
