BPN714: Electronic Bandage for Wound Healing

Project ID BPN714
Website
Start Date Wed 2013-Jul-31 17:06:51

Abstract Electrical stimulation has been shown to play a large role in the wound healing process by affecting angiogenesis, cell migration, antibacterial effects, etc. However, current electronic therapies have been limited to devices that can be safely and easily removed from patients because of the toxicity of the degradation products from the electrical components . Therefore, we propose a novel flexible "electronic bandage" that can be safely absorbed by the body. These bioresorbable systems will provide high-resolution, in-body mapping of the impedance field in the wound area in a minimally invasive way, providing significant knowledge and fundamental understanding of cell recovery in a number of medical procedures. These devices will also provide physicians with a way to monitor and eventually stimulate internal wound healing.
