The pH of wound fluid has long been recognized as an important diagnostic for assessing wound condition, but as yet there are few technological options available to the clinician. The availability of sensors that can measure wound pH, either in the clinic or at home could significantly improve clinical outcome – particularly in the early identification of complications such as infection. New material designs and electrochemical research strategies that are being targeted at wound diagnostics are...

The redox profile obtained from an electrochemically oxidised polyamide homopolymer containing L-tryptophan is shown to serve as a versatile molecular wire for monitoring pH. The transformation of the polypeptide is examined and the optimisation of the electrode-redox wire interface was conducted in order to enhance the electrochemical signature. Voltammetric interrogation of the modified polymer reveals the creation of quinoid functionality which can be efficiently addressed through interaction...

Carbon loaded polyethylene films were selected as the base substrate for a mechanically flexible and conductive sensing material for use in wound monitoring technologies. The films were processed using laser ablation of the surface to increase the effective surface area of the electrode and then subject to an oxidative electrochemical etch to improve the electron transfer kinetics. The surface morphology of the resulting films was analyzed and the electrode performance in relation to monitoring ...
