Using nano sensor technology, this university has developed smart bandages capable of offering real-time health reporting. Wearable technology in the health industry has become increasingly commonplace with affordable wristband trackers and similar accessories, but this new bandage design indicates a new level of health statistics being made available to the wearer.
Created by a research team from Swansea University's Institute of Life Science, the nano sensor bandages boast a combination of biochemistry, nanotechnology, nano-electronics and exciting technology like 3D printing and coding. The team hopes to begin trialling the intelligent medical dressing within a year. By providing a steady stream of information, such as activity levels and healing progress, the bandages could reduce the number of doctor visits. They also have the potential to release medication.
