I wonder how this stuff compares with a product that we used many years ago. It was called Opsite. We used it to dress wounds. It was transparent, so we could easily monitor the progress of the wound. It was like a second skin and didn't require dressing changes the way regular bandages did. The best part is that it could be worn in the shower. Interesting.

TY Jess. Saw it on the news last night. Great stuff apparently. Down-side, testing on mice.

This looks very promising. I wonder what it's made of?
