Bacterial cellulose is a nature-inspired material that can be used to reduce pain and risk of infection for wounds such as burns. Even today, around 11 million people worldwide suffer from burns, with many of these being children.
Applying and removing wound dressings can still be extremely painful, but bacterial cellulose materials offer a solution. Thanks to their bioengineered architecture, which is generated by bacteria, the dressing doesn’t attach to the wound and has an excellent biocompatibility. The material also supplies high levels of moisture to support wound healing.
We ask JeNaCell scientist, Uwe Beekmann, live on LinkedIn how this inspiring technology was developed and what applications it has now and in the future.Please note:
