AmoeBAND: The Most Versatile Bandage

by Hazel Chua

Remember the Chameleon Bandage that changes color to match your skin tone once you stuck it on? It was definitely an interesting concept, although a difficult one to execute.

Another novel bandage design that actually has the potential to become an actual product is the AmoeBAND, designed by Tay Pek-Khai, Hsu Hao-Ming, Tsai Cheng-Yu, Chen Kuei-Yuan, Chen Yi-Ting, Lai Jen-Hao, Ho Chia-Ying, Chen Ying-shan, Weng Yu-Ching, and Chung Kuo-Ting.

The design of the AmoeBAND increases the bandages effectiveness and ups the comfort level for the users because of strategically placed cut-outs on the plasters. If you’ve ever used a bandage on your finger (I’m sure you have), then you might’ve noticed that it’s particularly hard to stick the bandaid on just right so that your digit’s movements won’t be limited. The same bandage can be used for flat areas, joints or fingertips.


Aside from increased flexibility, the AmoeBAND’s come in four shades to match your skintone. It’s like finding a shade of concealer just right for your skin (girls can relate to this), only better, because you don’t really expect this kind of choice to come with bandaids.

The AmoeBAND comes in matchbox-type boxes that dispense the bandages with a quick push. And it seems like the designers through of everything, because the boxes are even labeled in Braille. It’s also a finalist for the 2012 IDEA Award.

    @Hazel, I’m pretty sure you copy-pasted the name of the designers…
