Researchers in Singapore have developed a wound–sensing bandage that can detect and send medical information wirelessly. The bandage is built with a wearable sensor that can detect the temperature and bacteria type of the wound. The device is able to detect and share information within fifteen minutes, greatly increasing the treatment time.
The smart bandage, called VeCare, utilizes microchips, breathable materials, and a fluid collector. This technology allows doctors to monitor patients remotely, while having a real-time and accurate diagnosis. Learn more by watching the video below.
