New Bandage for Sensitive Skin: Could Protect Premature Babies

A new development in bandage technology promises to be safe for use of premature babies. The biomedical engineers at MIT and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston have created a whole new type of medical tape. Their goal was to make a tape safe for use on very young skin. Traditional bandages use a glue to stick to the skin cells, which can damage the skin when removed. There are cases of premature babies receiving life long scars from the tape.  You can read the complete article here.
