The Band-Aid — Reinvented for the 21st Century


Cristina Lindblad's March 14 Bloomberg Businessweek story, above, featured the AmoeBAND, a rethinking of the 1920 original.

Very nicely done.

This seems needlessly complex.

I like the idea of the infection notifying cross. Does anyone know if this actually works?

Charlotte K,

Me too for many years. I now peel the wrapper apart very carefully, peeling one layer away from the other. It takes a sec to separate the two sides at an edge or corner, but then allows for perfect opening and a pristine Band-Aid.

Looks like a good idea, but I have the experience always of the bandage ripping when I try to get it out of the wrapper. Makes me wonder if the material of the bandage will be cooperative when you try to rip on those very detailed lines. Count me a skeptic!
