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.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
