Smart Bandage Research Uses mHealth to Improve Wound Healing, Care

Researchers from three US universities have launched a federally funded project to create a bandage with mHealth sensors that could help serious wounds heal faster and more effectively. With as much as $16 million in funding from the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) researchers at the University of California campuses at Davis and Santa Cruz and Tufts University are looking to create an mHealth wearable that uses digital health sensors, AI tools, regenerative medicine and a telemedicine platform. The goal is to not only create a sensor-embedded smart bandage that stimulates healing, but include a remote patient monitoring platform so that care providers can track the wound’s progress and adjust the bandage as needed.
