Adapting Resistive Sensors for Monitoring Moisture in Smart Wound Dressings

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Moisture plays a critical role in the wound healing process and, given the multitude of electrochemical sensors aimed at measuring humidity, it is somewhat surprising that there are few systems dedicated to this particular application. The issues relating to wound moisture and the practical challenges facing the adaptation of generic resistive moisture sensors to this area are considered along with the potential impact such systems could have on nursing practice.
