The Procellera Wound Care dressing from Warrior Wound Kit is a ‘bio-electric bandage’ that is advertised as the first self contained, conformable, cut-to-fit, electrically active wound dressing in the world. From their website – “The Procellera bandage is a sterile, single layer dressing consisting of a proprietary blend of elements that are held in position on the polyester bandage. When the bandage is wet with an electrolyte, like saline, the bandage literally becomes a flexible battery. The amount of current generated by the bandage is specifically designed to mimic the bodyâ€™s own natural bio-electrical current.

I asked my bud over at Mil-Spec Monkey about the possibility of making up some medicsquare patches just like he did with the blood type patches shown above, and viola! Here they are. They’re offered in the same colour schemes as the blood type patches and are available in 1″ and 2″ squares.
