    Abstract

    Carbon loaded polyethylene films were selected as the base substrate for a mechanically flexible and conductive sensing material for use wound monitoring technologies. The films were processed using laser ablation of the surface to increase the effective surface area of the electrode and then subject to an oxidative electrochemical etch to improve the electron transfer kinetics. The surface morphology of the resulting films was analysed and the electrode performance in relation to monitoring uric acid, a key wound biomarker, was optimized. A prototype smart bandage was designed, based on interfacing the mesh to a portable potentiostat, and the response to urate and potential interferences assessed.
