Smart bandages designed to monitor and tailor treatment for chronic wounds: Bandages with integrated pH and temperature sensors and electronically triggered drug release are designed to improve healing

A team of engineers has developed a prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver appropriate drug treatments to improve the chances of healing. While the lab-tested bandages remain to be assessed in a clinical context, the research is aimed at transforming bandaging from a traditionally passive treatment into a more active paradigm to address a persistent and difficult medical challenge.
