      Smart bandages fitted with microsensors could soon be used to make sure wounds are healing properly

      sensor is being developed which could one day be embedded in bandages to ensure wounds are healing as planned. Engineers from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh are working on a project to create a micro sensor capable of detecting tiny fluctuations in the repair process. Microscale mechanical changes will be observed and tracked to allow for better healing, the researchers hope. It is estimated wounds cost the NHS up to £5.1 billion a year with resources used on burns, diabetic ulcers, caesarean section scars, surgical incisions and simple cuts.
