This smart bandage releases meds on command for better healing

Taking care of a cut or scrape usually means swapping out the bandage a few times, and maybe putting a little healing cream or hydrogel on there. But what if the dressing could dispense that stuff on its own? That’s the idea behind a smart bandage now being tested by engineers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Harvard and MIT.

Instead of plain sterile cotton or other fibers, this dressing is made of “composite fibers with a core electrical heater covered by a layer of hydrogel containing thermoresponsive drug carriers,” which really says it all.

In a paper published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials, the team documents how in tests, critters (not humans — those tests come later) healed better when given the active bandage. They also made sure that the heat didn’t affect the healing process or the medication.

For ordinary scrapes a normal bandage (or plaster, for our friends across the pond) is probably still more than sufficient — this is for people whose healing processes are inhibited, or for whom frequent dressing changes are impossible or inconvenient.

Next up, in addition to further testing to satisfy the FDA, is investigating how to integrate sensors with the fibers, to measure blood glucose levels, pH and other indicators of how the healing process is going. Maybe soon your bandage will even include a progress bar.

Excellent awareness step by UAE Government !!

If you drink soda / carbonated beverages (sugar water) once a week, then your bones gonna get porus and you gonna end up with diabetes in late 30's !!!
A 50% 'sin' tax on soda in Dubai could have global consequences

The United Arab Emirates has instituted a hefty tax on sugary drinks and cigarettes: 50% on soda and 100% on energy drinks and tobacco products.

The tax, which went into effect October 1, has several goals. The first is to generate revenue for the UAE government as global oil prices remain low, according to Gulf News. The second is to improve public health since the UAE has one of the worst diabetes rates in the world. Today, 19.3% of the UAE population (nearly one in five people) between the ages of 20 and 79 have type 2 diabetes. The UAE's diabetes figures have gotten worse in recent years, according to the International Diabetes Federation — in 2013, 10% of the population had diabetes.

Some other countries, including South Africa, have implemented much tamer sugar taxes but this one is quite a serious move. It will be interesting to see what happens and whether there is an effect.

Live in a country with EU/240V electricity and plugs? This expensive brand caters to you. My favorite is the Vigor: a great all-around power hub with USB, USB-C, QC3.0, and Qi.

Future of Photonics IC,
which consumes just single digit watts and over thousand times faster than electronic chips,
and a thousand times more reliable, as it won't deteriorate over time.
