Hydrogel Adhesive: Healing Wounds

2020-04-01T11:01:38-07:00

Cuts, scrapes, blisters, burns, splinters, and punctures there are a number of ways broken skin happens, Hydrogel Adhesive helps. Most treatments for skin wounds involve simply placing a barrier over them (usually an adhesive gauze bandage). This keeps it moist, limit pain, and reduces exposure to infectious microbes. A new, scalable approach to speeding up wound healing, developed based on heat-responsive hydrogels. Mechanically active, stretchy, tough, highly adhesive, and antimicrobial, active adhesive dressings (AADs). To close wounds significantly faster than other methods and prevent bacterial growth without additional apparatus or stimuli. https://glewengineering.com/engineers-add-new-updates-to-medical-advances-2019/ [...]

Engineers Develop “Iron Man” Suits – Coming to Factory Floors

2019-09-13T15:14:13-07:00

Full-body exoskeletons will give workers super strength. What’s the most important things for people to know about the full-body exoskeleton, which can turn an assembly-line worker into a superhero?   Engineers have been working on this wearable robotics technology since 2000, when engineers began cobbling together experimental super-soldier suits for the U.S. Military. A 2010 prototype, which enabled the wearer to punch through wooden boards, earned the nickname “Iron-Man Suit” in the homage to the high-tech gear in the eponymous comic book and movies. But that bulky version kept the user tethered to the [...]
