Photo: High-tech fibrous material [08/04/2015] Regenerative medicine uses cells harvested from the patient’s own body to heal damaged tissue. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a cell-free substrate containing proteins to which autologous cells bind and grow only after implantation.Novel tissue substitute made of high-tech fibers - Read more

Photo: Smart bandage [18/03/2015] Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, are developing a new type of bandage. Thanks to advances in flexible electronics, the researchers have created a new "smart bandage" that uses electrical currents to detect early tissue damage from pressure ulcers, or bedsores, before they can be seen by human eyes - and while recovery is still possible.

ARTcut: Standardized injury of skin models for wound healing research

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/12/2014] Comparative research models are indispensable in wound healing research to evaluate new treatments of chronic wounds. Consequently, studies need to exhibit equivalent basic prerequisites and be conducted on similar wounds. This is why a team of researchers is working on an automated process to place standardized wounds in skin models.ARTcut: Standardized injury of skin models for wound healing research - Read more
