Smart bandage to help diabetics

Danish doctors are developing a smart bandage to monitor wounds as they heal, reports the BBC.

“Created for diabetics, the bandage would be studded with tiny sensors and send data to clinicians via the net.

Invented at the Diabetic Foot Clinic, in Aarhus, researchers believe it could help diabetics keep feet healthy and avoid the risks of amputation”.

“With a mobile phone connected to the intelligent bandage, the patient could go on holiday to another continent and still be monitored”, according to Dr Niels Ejskjaer head of the Diabetic Foot Clinic.
