Bandage Detects Wounds Before Doctors Can See Them
Engineers at UC Berkeley are developing a bandage that uses electrical currents to identify early tissue damage from bedsores
A smart bandage that uses electrical currents and utilizes flexible electronics is being developed by engineers at UC Berkeley. The bandage is able to detect early tissue damage from bedsores while they are still invisible to the naked eye. It could be used by doctors spot-checking patients in order to identify the problem before they can see it, and while the possibility for recovery is still high.
