Electrochemical Scaffold for Wound Healing
This technology establishes a novel foundation as an alternative to antibiotic-free wound dressings to eliminate infectious species from tissue via the continuous delivery of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Considerable attention is being focused on alternative, antibiotic-free biofilm removal strategies and the concept of electrical stimulation as a wound...
