Smart Bandage Technology
The simple bandage is easy to remove, covers the cracked surface and helps. Today, scientists are using the techniques used in traditional wearable devices such as smart watches and fitness trackers to make dressings. They began to bring various smaller sensors to the bandage and made them more sensitive.
Scientists have also created raw materials called hydrogels. The hydrogel is close to the human surface. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found a way to combine the two technologies. They gave an elastic polymer
It has hardness related to tissue softness. This original combination product has zigzag or Z-shaped metal wires. These wires connected to the electronic sensor extend well and will not damage the sensor.
Tufts University recently announced this discovery in an experiment that used sensible bandages that not only monitor but also treat serious injuries. These are smart dressing sensors with temperature and pH. In addition to damage control, smart bandages also contain thermosetting methods for drug delivery.
The technology solves the problem of injury monitoring by providing inexpensive wearable bandages that can detect early signs of traumatic infections, such as bleeding and pH fluctuations, and can detect pressure on the wound from the outside. Considering the need to change dressings, a simple dressing detail will provide information about the progress of the wound and issue a preliminary warning to the patient and the remote medical staff.
Researchers around the world are also working on different types of knowledge bandages:
A team from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Harvard Medical School and MIT accepted a bandage. When the internal fibers are hot, the bandage can deliver drugs such as antibiotics, while Swansea wants to use nanometers. The combination of technology and 5G network to form an intelligent network. wound healing.
With the help of the Paper Association, after conducting laboratory tests on these bandages, Tufts engineers are now seeking clinical trials and partners who can help bring reasonable bandages to the development stage. Sonkusale believes that the bandage with monitoring function can only be used for one to two cycles, while the monitoring and treatment version will continue to be used after five to eight years.
There are a variety of dressings that can be used for various purposes, such as orthopedic procedures for developing intellectual dressings. The idea behind this idea is that they will simultaneously monitor for damage and represent communications in the event of any abnormality or spread. Implants are defined as those materials used for internal body components to heal or repair internal injuries, such as surgical sutures of wounds during surgery. The materials used to implant the device should be non-toxic, biocompatible, and perishable if possible.
A team of researchers at Tufts University has prepared drugs that can control wounds and carry out regular medication. Currently, there is only one model, an application detailed in a new article in the book “Small”, that will help change healthcare at some point, allowing doctors to monitor and actively treat her patients more closely.
Plastics play an important role in the newer, advanced wound care industry: rare dressings. These dressings are made of various plastics and environments (such as food or liquids). After breakage, the solution will evaporate, leaving a fine solid mechanism designed to remove dust and dirt, and reduce pain by expanding nerve endings. As the wound heals, the epidermal cells of these old bandages will strip the solid of the melted bandage.
Csiro created this in the material they used as a bandage.
When applied to wounds, it can observe even the slightest temperature difference by changing the color of the material. This allows you to immediately observe a growing infection. This is especially useful for chronically injured patients who are difficult to care for. A reasonable dressing can achieve this goal without any nutrition.
The iTens bandage is a recent medical patch that uses soft current to help relieve body pain. This electrotherapy supplement is prominently displayed in complex butterfly-shaped products. The pattern has round wings, covered with a beautiful gradient pattern, and connected to the surface by a gel label. The bandage is made through an application and a smartphone.
Intelligent dressings have the ability to control the wound healing process by measuring wound conditions, which shows that different degrees of healing have very different characteristics. Doing so may reduce the use of bandages and may cause damage. In addition, since the nursing staff will reduce the time spent on treating different patients, this will also help create a more effective hospital condition.
These sticky dressings are suitable for people of all ages.
In daily life, everyone makes smaller cuts / scratches. The most important feature of the new technology for adhesive dressings is that they can be used on the dining table, that is, people do not want medicines to buy these dressings. Although people of all these ages have these bandages every time. Therefore, children are still better consumers.
The first aid kit should include cotton, thick dressing, liquid dressing, pet-friendly fungicide, antibacterial ointment (if coming from a tick, pliers or tweezers) and a sticky tampon. If you enter a toxic wood or ivy zone, you can prepare some dog cream and a Tecnu bottle, which is also very wise.
Smart materials are starting to appear: footsteps and heartbeats have been made into smart compression dressings for venous ulcers. When the material is stretched, the difference in resistance will be accurately estimated. Therefore, dressings will judge whether they are too wet or too light, and will swell. Currently, it will be woven into conductive wires that can act as connecting wires, but Footfalls is considering printing solutions to make the product more durable.
Scratches on the knee or elbow may be inconvenient to track.
Larger bandages or adhesive bandages on both sides will squeeze the joint and walk with you. Another option is to use rare bandages. This prevents minor bleeding and protects the soil and water from damage. The liquid bandage is shower-proof, you only need to use it when you use it. Large areas of scratches must be covered to promote healing. Antibiotic ointments or moisturizing dressings (also called occlusive dressings) will work. Some scrapers do not help them by helping to scrape, but are smart and natural.
Children around the world know the bandages used to prevent cuts and scratches in these environments. Through home-made textiles and operations, plastic designs can help bandages—after rare dressings—become a must-have in the country ’s medicines and medicine cabinets. The bandages of the early 1920s were mainly made of fabric, cotton and bandage materials: plastic-based cement adhered to the surface, preventing soil and bacteria from entering the wound. The initial contribution of plastic to modern dressings is worthwhile.
