Researchers have been developing an electrospinning device to stretch fibrous strands out o fbiodegradable food starch solution, to be woven together as one would a textile to create potential applications like napkins, tissues, and medical dressings.
Starch, being the most abundant and least expensive of all natural polymers could be used in this technique to scale for industrial processes that would be highly cost effective. Other than cost, one consumer benefit of starch-based bandages would be their painlessness.
A starch bandage would over time degrade into glucose—or sugar, that can be later absorbed by the body.
