Technological solutions in wound healing

Principal investigator

Dr I. Triantis

Professor P. A. Kyriacou

Project overview

Rapid healing of wounds, including those that relate to surgery or injury, as well as those that occur due to a disease, e.g. diabetic ulcers. The benefits will be enormous both for patients and for the health system, by respectively reducing mortality and infection and reducing the time of hospitalisation and the enormous use of resources necessary for conventional treatment. Application specific optical spectroscopy and electrical stimulation will be utilised in combination with “smart” dressings that will feature embedded miniaturised multi-modal sensors for real time monitoring of the condition of the wound.
