Wound Care Band / Medical product

Wound Care Band
Wound Care Band

Wound Care Band uses "Bioamine sensing discoloration patch" to detect wound conditions at wound penetration. When the wound is infected with bacteria and produces a corrupt bioamine, the patch then senses an increase in bioamine concentration, changing its color from mustard yellow to orange to reflect whether Wound Care Band should be discarded and changed a new one, using cost-compliant methods to alert the injured people and help their wound heal.
