Electronic skins will play a significant role in monitoring, personalized medicine, prosthetics, and robotics.
Graphene represents incredible opportunities for advancement in many fields, including medical science.
Scientists have found that a simple device can reduce swelling after kidney transplantation. Clinical trial shows shortened hospital stay for patients and reduced surgical site infections by almost 60 percent.
The patch, which can be folded around surgical tools, may someday be used in robotic surgery to repair tissues and organs.
Scientists have developed a next generation wound dressing that can detect infection and improve healing in burns, skin grafts and chronic wounds.
Plasma-coated bandages could revolutionise the treatment of chronic wounds such as pressure, diabetic or vascular ulcers that won't heal on their own.
Researchers have developed a smart surface that can actively and repeatedly release and reabsorb substances by environmental stimuli.
Researchers have developed a super-stretchy, transparent and self-powering sensor that records the complex sensations of human skin.
Researchers report that among patients with obesity, robotic kidney transplants produce survival outcomes comparable to those seen among nonobese patients.
The app "Swift Skin and Wound", which accurately measures and charts the progression of skin wounds, could potentially have a significant impact on clinical management and patient outcomes.
A team of engineers has developed a prototype bandage designed to actively monitor the condition of chronic wounds.
