NUMS to introduce Pakistan’s first-ever ‘Healing Bandage’

National University of Medical Sciences research on Pakistan’s first-ever healing bandage will quicken the healing process of various kinds of wounds of the injured people.

How does a Healing Bandage works?

Healing Bandage can take up to 5 to 12 hours to speed up the wound-healing process. The testing of the bandage on human subjects will take place at Rawalpindi Medical University (RMU).

This research project will lead to the development and commercialization of a skin wound healing platform within two years.

Dr. Hussain Mustatab Wahedi, a Ph.D. from South Korea in “Regenerative Medicine” worked on a 10 million rupees research project. HEC awarded him the aforementioned project after reviewing his submitted proposal to produce an innovative Healing Bandage. It will be a step forward to provide solace to the people.
