“A new bandage uses gentle electric pulses to speed wound healing. The technology, which uses low frequency electricity, has also shown promise in treating baldness and obesity, NPR reports.
Electric fields facilitate cell regeneration which helps us heal and our bodies even generate them when we have a cut or a burn, according to material scientist Xudong Wang of the University of Wisconsin-Madison who developed these devices.
The new bandage is made out of a material that creates an electric field when it’s stretched or pulled by the movements of its wearer. This means its healing powers don’t require a battery.”
