A team of engineers and scientists from the RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, have reportedly developed a smart wound dressings with inbuilt nanosensors integrated that possess the ability to glow to notify patients when their wound is not properly healing.
According to reports, the smart wound dressings harness the strong antifungal and antibacterial properties of magnesium hydroxide. Additionally, wound dressings incorporate fluorescent sensors that flash brightly when exposed to UV light if the wound starts to get infected. This allows the dressing to be used as an effective tool to track the healing process.
The dressings are l
