Handage / Bandage


Handage is a handy bandage. When people get injured, it can be used to stop bleeding and prevent infection without tools or others’ assistance. It is portable and easy to use. The user can even use a certain number of Handages to cover large wounds. The work theory is that chemicals inside reacting with air makes Handage inflate rapidly and thus form pressure to the wounded skin and vessels to stop bleeding.
