Surgical dressings, plasters, tape and scissorsControlled release from open wound dressings (CROWD)

Wound infection is a common problem affecting up to 20 per cent of hospital patients and can cause significant morbidity and mortality.

This project aims to reduce this statistic and the inconvenience attached to regular hospital visits. It will also reduce the significant drain on NHS resources by delivering a new kind of wound dressings which require less regular contact with health care professionals and higher levels of sanitisation.
