Hot Cold Bandage / Assist for injection

Hot Cold Bandage
Hot Cold Bandage

The concept makes intravenous medication easier and safer.

For some patients, it is hard to find the right position to inject medicine by non-professionals. As a result, it may cause some damages such as extravasation injury.

Moreover, to prevent wound infection, it is important to stop bleeding after injecting.

This design improves the situation by using T.G.M.(thermoelectric generating module).

The orange side of the bandage will be heated, it causes blood vessels to expand, and increasing the chance to inject successfully. The blue side is for stopping bleeding through cooling and constricting blood vessels.
