A novel bandage for better healing of wounds

Researchers have developed a dermal patch with a blend of natural healing agents and polymers in a bilayer structure for improved wound healing

Wound dressings have evolved considerably from the herbal concoctions and magical potions that were popularly accepted as therapy, until the 19th century. Today, wound care is no longer just using a piece of gauze dipped in Dettol. With bioactive agents, nanoparticles, antioxidant agents, growth factors, polymers and more, the science of wound healing is advancing continually.

Money rewards are less likely to improve mood if you are in pain.

University students who experience physical pain perform worse on tasks and have lower moods than those without pain.

Everyone experiences some physical pain in life. Pain affects our mood. Research has shown that people diagnosed with long-term pain frequently experience a negative mood. Would it be similar for people whose pain is not severe enough to consult a doctor and get it diagnosed, that is, sub-clinical?

Efficient 3D modelling of large area landforms

A novel machine learning based method to compress and reconstruct 3D spatial data from remote sensing

Land surveys are used to find and monitor land features in large areas. Information such as differences in elevation, area and heights of buildings, vegetation, water and roads can be gathered by physically surveying the land. The same information can be gathered using pictures captured remotely by cameras mounted on satellites or tripods, drones and helicopters.

Better face shields, better protection: hydrophobic coating helps mitigate COVID-19 exposure

Researchers improve the efficiency of face shields by coating them with a hydrophobic layer.

Face shields act as primary barriers to airborne disease-carrying droplets. They are effective in closed spaces such as aircraft cabins and offices where chances of exposure to the droplets from speech, breath, cough or sneeze are high. Face shields have assumed importance during the COVID-19 pandemic, and simple face shields made from plexiglass plastic or polyethylene terephthalate (PET) are available for public use.
