A team of researchers has¬†engineered an innovative magnetic wound-healing gel that promises to heal diabetic wounds three times faster, reduce the rates of recurrence, and in turn, lower the incidents of limb amputations.¬† The innovative magnetic hydrogel, which contains skin cells for healing as well as magnetic particles, takes a comprehensive ‘all-in-one’ approach to wound healing, accelerating the process on several fronts. To maximize therapeutic results, a wireless external magnetic device is used to activate skin cells and accelerate the wound healing process.
