MAE research in the running for OSU coolest science story of the year



It’s not science fiction: bandages that direct electric stimulation to tissue are being used to speed wound healing in pets and people.

A new, patented bandage technology developed by researchers in The Ohio State University Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has already proved beneficial for Daisy*, a four-year-old canine companion that suffered from a chronic wound. Today, Daisy has a new lease on life thanks to a collaboration between Ohio State’s College of Engineering and College of Veterinary Medicine.
