Smart Bandages Research Led By ILS at Swansea

We're always proud to share news on how Swansea students and Swansea institutions help improving people's lives ...

The research project, led by the Institute of Life Science (ILS) at Swansea, centers around a 3D printed smart bandage, which will use built-in nano-sized sensors and 5G wireless data to track the patient’s activity levels and healing process, and then transmit that information back to the treating physician.

This is not the first 3D printed bandage we’ve seen; even back in 2014, a group of University of Toronto graduate students developed skin-like 3D bioprinted bandages that could help advance the treatment of burns. But the research being conducted at the ILS is the first we’ve seen where the bandage itself actually transmits information back to the doctor. [Original source]
