Partnering with Johnson & Johnson, a group of graduate students from Industrial Design, MBA and Textile Engineering programs set out to create a front-line wound care solution. The student team aimed to design a product that possesses antimicrobial properties, promotes wound healing, and is made from a readily available biomaterial. After extensive research, students opted for a hydrogel product made from chitosan, alginates, and/or other natural hydrogels. These gels are derived from natural sources, such as seaweed, and provide significant healing benefits over synthetic gels. Natural gels are non-toxic, bio-absorbable and biocompatible, and naturally anti-scarring. The team then designed single use hydrogel packets as a delivery device. Through several prototype iterations, the team was able to produce a 3-D printed hydrogel packet that is portable, mess-free and ideal for users with active lifestyles.
