European scientists develop absorbable bandages

This article was originally published here

Study co-author Elizaveta Permyakova of Russia’s National University of Science and Technology worked on developing the absorbable bandage.

An international research group has developed a biocompatible bandage material that has antibacterial properties and will not require changing, a potential boon for burn patients.

The material is self-absorbable, and a new bandage can be put directly on top of the old one, alleviating the need for the frequent and often-painful changing of a burn patient’s bandages. The bandages could also help patients with other wounds in which the healing skin is damaged by the changing of dressings.
