Scientists have developed a smart dressing for examining old and deep wounds that can provide a complete picture in just fifteen minutes.
Some wounds are so deep that they need to be prevented over and over again despite being bandaged, or they can turn into ulcers. Scientists have developed a smart dressing called “V-Care”. The National University of Singapore also called the smart dressing a wound sensor, which can be used to receive real-time data through an app.
With this dressing, healing of non-healing wounds and ulcers can be seen. In just 15 minutes, you can notice the type of bacteria and microbes in the wound, temperature, pH, and inflammation elements inside. All details are fed into the app in real-time.
V-Care This strip provides clinicians with instant, helpful information. To enable them to make the right decision about fistula treatment. It’s also time to amputate an arm or a leg.
Sensor install in the last dressing. Absorb the wound fluid inside. And record the acidity and temperature of the wound. As well as other biomarkers. It notifies the app immediately. Noting the size of the wound. The battery inside it can be recharge many times. With this dressing, the patient can also check his fistula and avoid further problems.
