This 'smart bandage' will help you heal like the Wolverine
Sadly, it's still got to go through more testing before it makes it to market and that could take years.
LINCOLN, NEBRASKA/ CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS — Researchers have designed a 'smart bandage' they say heals skin tissue 3 times faster than a regular medical dressing.
It accomplishes this via medication loaded inside the bandage threads and drug delivery can then be controlled via smartphone.
The researchers say in the future this could accelerate healing of battlefield wounds.
Details of the technology were published in the journal Advanced Functional Material. It was co-developed by MIT, Harvard and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
