Band-Aid Changes Color To Tell Users When To Replace It [Video]
Design

Adhesive bandage strips can change shape to better cover the injured area and have a built-in mechanism to show when they are old.

The AmoeBAND is an adhesive bandage that’s inspired by amoeba, a shapeless unicellular organism that can adjust its shape to suit its surroundings. The Band-Aid concept allows users to tear away sections of its rectangular form to make a new shape that can fit comfortably around a finger, joint, back of the hand, or even finger tips.

In addition to its adjustable shape, the AmoeBAND also has an indicator in the middle that changes color when it’s time to replace the bandage. The band-aid comes in different colors so users can match their skin tones. Watch the video below for a demonstration of the AmoeBand:
