MIT Scientists Turn To Spiders For New Tape Technology

Getting a bandage to adhere to a still-wet wound can be all but impossible. Since the healing process generates moisture, this problem can be ongoing for a long, long time. Trying to keep a healing wound clean can add to the problem.

Spider webs have the ability to absorb moisture from the insects they trap, almost instantly drying, in order to maintain a strong grip on their prey.

The tape they are developing is double-sided and intended to replace sutures with something quicker, less expensive and less invasive.
