Smartbandage trials in 12 months

Bandages which can detect how a wound is healing and send messages back to doctors could be trialled within the next 12 months, scientists have said.

The bandages would use real-time 5G technology to monitor what treatment is needed and also keep track of a patient's activity levels.

The work is being led by Swansea University's Institute of Life Science.
