Dr Vincent Bouchiat, CEO & Co-Founder
We are developing a technology platform that exploits the biocompatible features of monolayer graphene to record wound evolution and enable remote monitoring of healing. Our flexible wearable patch is based on the integration of a monolayer graphene polycrystalline layer back-bonded onto a biocompatible polymer layer. The resulting film can directly be applied onto the bed-wound and is inserted inside a commercial bandage. The biosensing devices are based on flexible graphene transistors, which continuously records the state of the wound, avoiding opening the dressing.
