When our skin is wounded, the first thing we do to cover the wound is to use a Band-Aid to stop the bleeding. It’s a simple treatment that prevents bacteria on the surface of your skin to penetrate into subcutaneous tissue and can cause infection.
Designed by Yong Zhang and ShuChang Cui, Sterilized Band-aids Disinfection and Dressing combines two steps of anti-septic and dressing. Most people are afraid to apply anti-septic to a fresh wound, most of the time, their first instinct is to cover it up. This product aims to help overcome that fear, the bandages are individually sealed with instructions for use, therefore, it’s very easy to apply, even for first-time users.
Upon opening the package and folding it, the anti-septic can be squeezed out to disinfect the wound. Then take out the bandage to cover your wound. It is much more convenient, hygienic, and safe.
