Grapheal is developing WoundLAB as digital assistant for a wound care. It is based on an innovative electronic patch enabling continuous remote monitoring of wound healing. It involves novel bioelectronic material (graphene) as a sensing material that measures the wound conditions remotely at the wound bed without interfering with healing. Its main function consists in spotting early infections of wounds, and more particularly in the case of patients suffering of chronic wounds such as elderly and diabetics. The product is intended to be used under prescription of a medical doctor and applied under the supervision of nurses.
