  • A Smart Bandage To Let You Know When Your Wounds Are Infected

    Fast Company - 03/22/2013

    As medical technology continues to advance, the lowly bandage continually gets left behind. Sure, it was exciting when Clear Strips bandages were introduced in 1957. And the Liquid Bandage, unveiled in 2002, is nothing to sniff at. But where are our sensor-filled Band-Aids?

    They’re coming soon, thanks in part to work being done by Ed Goluch, an assistant professor of chemical engineering at Northeastern University. He’s working on a “smart bandage” that can monitor infections and alert patients to their existence. If it goes into production, this will be the next big step in bandage technology.
