New "Smart Bandage" that heals wounds 25% faster

Scientists have developed a Smart bandage that can heal a serious wound 25% faster than the average bandage.

A miniature prototype of the advanced medical technology was tested on mice in the US.

The team tracked the data in real time on a smartphone, all without the need for wires.

The treatment group healed 25% more rapidly and with a 50% enhancement in skin remodeling.

The battery-free flexible device monitors the injury and delivers targeted healing treatments.

The electronic layer on the smart bandage is as thick as a strand of hair.

The scientists hope to improve the “promising, proof of concept design” and push it to mass production.
