Researchers are developing a state-of-the-art bandage that may be able to extract bugs out of wounds and accelerate the healing process, a report shows.
They plan to run more studies to test the meshes on composites that resemble human skin in hopes that it will lead to smart wound dressings that could prevent infections. Some doctors expressed hope that the new nano-technology would enable them to stick the nano–Band-Aid on a wound and simply peel it off to get rid of the bugs. Japanese researchers have also made use of nanotechnology to develop the world’s thinnest Band-Aid which has surgical purpose. The new adhesive bandage, reported to be a thousand times thinner than plastic wrap, can effectively treat injuries to soft organs such as the lungs. It breaks down naturally after healing and becomes invisible in one month
