Wound Painter / Healthcare, Adhesive Bandage

Wound Painter is a adhesive bandage, with special thermochromical ink whose color “ will vary on different humidity, temperature and pH value.” The user would know the severity of the wound area through the pattern shown on the bandage, which is reflected by the reaction between the wound and the medicine on the bandage. The two split ends of the bandage are designed to make it fit the shape of body better.
When the humidity, temperature and pH value have huge variations on the wound, the bandage will appear red color which spread out just like bleeding. It warn the user to dispose of the wound as quickly.
