MIT’s Xuanhe Zhao has designed a bandage that releases medicine in response to changes in skin temperature. It can be programmed to light if wound attention is required, such as when medicine is low.
Zhao believes that hydrogel coated electronics will also be able to be used inside the body. He suggested that implanted, biocompatible glucose sensors, or soft, compliant neural probes could be created.
