Recently, Jiang Qiuran’s researchgroup at the College of Textiles, DHU, has made progress in wound monitoring sensing scaffolds. Sudden or progressive wound over-deformation can cause secondary damage. If not detected in time, it may cause infection, other wound deterioration conditions, and even death. Based on the condition, Jiang Qiuran’s team at the College of Textiles developed a wound repair monitoring technology.
The sensing scaffold designed by the team can achieve wide length, high sensitivity, fast response, and stable and long-lasting wound strain monitoring in an aqueous environment without encapsulation, providing wound repair monitoring and early warning. Therefore, it effectively reduces secondary injuries caused by secondary damage. At the same time, the encapsulation-free design of the sensing scaffold preserves the permeability of the microfiber matrix and promotes tissue repair.
