Advancing Wearable Bandages

 Seen this idea a number of times over a number of years.   Clearly some thought about doing this innovation methodically.  

Smart Bandage Can Monitor Chronic Wounds

News-Medical Life Sciences, Emily Henderson, October 21, 2021

A wearable sensor developed by scientists at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore General Hospital can assess and remotely monitor chronic wounds wirelessly and in real time. The VeCare wound assessment platform, which includes an immunosensing bandage, an electronic processor, and a mobile application, can read temperature, pH, bacteria type, and inflammatory factors within 15 minutes. The bandage can rapidly evaluate wound microenvironment, inflammation, and infection state by detecting multiple biomarkers from wound fluid via an electrochemical system. An attached microfluidic collector boosts wound fluid delivery to the sensor by up to 180%, and the processor sends data to the app for real-time wound assessment and analysis onsite.  ... '
