Dr. Loboa’s work with smart bandages will be featured as one of five “big game-changers” for health in the February 2014 issue of Prevention magazine. The article explains how a smart bandage, made with nanofibres, can be programmed to deliver a particular drug to a wound and then degrade by itself. Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and pain-relievers are kinds of drugs that can all be integrated into the smart bandages. These bandages are intended to be used for a wide spectrum of wounds—from scrapes to burns or other serious wounds. Take a look at page 73 of the February 2014 issue of Prevention to read the full article by Bonnie Cleaver: “The future of medicine: Mind-blowing health breakthroughs set to rock your world.”
