AmoebaBAND was inspired by amoeba, a shapeless unicellular organism which is able to adjust its shape to its environment. Based on this concept, these industrial designers have come up with improved band-aid concept design, so that the same band-aid can be used in different areas after tearing into shape.
Hands are our body parts where band-aid is most frequently used. Innovative AmoeBAND uses a simple tear action to create a suitable shape for the affected area. According to German EMFT* latest research, when an infection of a wound is detected, the pH value is between 6.5 and 8.5. AmoeBAND’s indicator cross turns to purple to alert its user it’s time to replace his or her band-aid. The innovative material enables you to regularly check your would from outside without interrupting the healing process.
