Smart bandage developed by CSU researcher can prevent chronic wounds

(piano music) – Hi, my name’s Yan Vivian Li. I’m a textile scientist by training and I have been working on
textile design and innovation in particularly for health care product for around five years. Each year in the United States,
at least two million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. And at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. The proposed project focuses
on the design of smart bandage that is made of core-shell fibers. The fibers change color
when bacteria is detected. The color change is able
to trigger the release of antibiotics directly and simultaneously to the infected sites. The smart bandage will
significantly reduce the likelihood of bacteria infection, potentially
prevent life-threatening damage such as chronic wound and death. The smart bandage will
protect each one of us and our family, protect
patients, stop outbreaks, protect the food supplies,
as well as empower our military battlefield medical care. (piano music) As a mom, a wife, a
leader, and an educator, I want to commit to my family’s health and my community’s health. I want to mobilize young
minds through innovation and a creative design for
healthy people, communities, and a healthy world. (piano music)
