Wounds heal faster if there is rapid movement in the patient like exercising as it improves blood circulation in the body. These sensors may also have the ability to detect blood clotting and infections in the wound. Depending on your recovery speed, the doctor will take needed steps to fasten the recovery process and suggest you better treatment. Someone with slow recovery needs to stay home while someone with faster recovery could go out often. Due to continuous movement of information to health care professional the patients will also be conscious about their condition as the band would be connected to their Smartphones. The 5G low-latency will let the patients inform their doctors if there are any health related changes or emergency. To bring down the cost 3D printers at ILS would be used to produce the bandages while experts will be working on nano-technology to develop the tiny sensors.
Prof Clement added, “Traditional medicine may be where a clinician might see a patient and then prescribe the treatment approach for a month or three; all is well but all of the evidence is there before them in this 5G world, so the clinician and patient can work together to address the challenge.”
“Sometimes we revere doctors so much that we tell them all is well but all of the evidence is there before them in this 5G world, so the clinician and patient can work together to address the challenge.”
“What we’re creating within this city deal is an ecosystem that can prove concept, prove business, manufacture locally and take innovation to a global marketplace.”
So to button up, if smart bandage are successful in their trial they can provide the doctors with more precise reports, detailed sight of the whole scenario and eliminate the guess-work. Lesser visits to doctors and faster recovery is the whole aim of this project. Let’s hope for a positive outcome and more such valuable medical advancements in the future.
