Smart Stitches Can Send Doctors Information On Wounds As They Heal
A new technology can sew sensors into tissue, and potentially spot and treat issues before they arise
A team of researchers from Tufts University are developing a prototype for smart stitches which can be used like ordinary stitches to seal wounds, but will double as real-time data trackers. The stitches will periodically send updates directly to the doctors treating the injury. By creating multiple thread types which form a more complex arrays of sensors when woven together, the smart stitches can be achieved.
