7 Next-Gen Bandages That Help Heal Wounds

Posted by Phil on 8/20/09

Ran into this one via Digg, and science/med geeks should definitely check it out.

In particular I love the Gecko Bandage, as my wife and son have allergies to some of the adhesives used on ye olde sticking plasters, and the Ultrasound Device, which you must admit has a kick-ass Star Trek vibe, but also amazing potential for wound treatment without contact (minimizing the potential for infection, allergic reaction) and without consumables. This would be perfect for first-responders, third-world medical care, and perhaps even first-aid kits some day.
