Develop a disposable bandage to stop bleeding and wound healing speed
A team of researchers at the University of Texas has developed a new injectable bandage, a combination of a widely used nutrient with nanoparticles, to be injected into the form of a hydro-gel that can stop bleeding quickly and enhance the chances of wound healing.

An edible seaweed extract was used to blend with two-dimensional synthetic nanoparticles to generate an injectable hydrogen-gel that could quickly stop bleeding. The ability of nanoparticles to promote accelerated blood clotting and wound healing was noted in this developed bandage.

"Injectable water gels are promising substances for wound healing in the case of internal injuries and bleeding, where these vital substances can be introduced into the wound site by injection," said Dr. Achilish K. Jarwar, one of the scientists involved in the study.
