These revolutionary liquid bandaid designs cleverly do more than cover an injury and help it heal. Thanks to innovative color-changing technology, these bandaids are able to use reacting dyes to give accurate reading of the wound's conditions and be able to test for infections.

Often times bandaids do a well enough job of healing an injury by concealing the bleeding but this also stops people from being able to accurately acess the wound and see if it is infected. These liquid bandages are made from a clear material complete with color technology that reacts to oxygen to give an accurate and speedy reading of the would. The bandaid uses a red porphyrin and a green nitrocellulose to read the wound. Red pigment will show up if the would is lacking oxygen and needs to breathe more to heal.
