Battelle has partnered with the Office of Naval Research, Naval Research Laboratory and Naval Medical Research Center to design a medical wrap that will work to cover injured limbs and preserve tissue for up to three days. The U.S. Navy said Thursday the Acute Care Cover for the Severely Injured Limb medical wrap will consist of an outer cover that serves to adapt to the shape of the injured limb, mitigate blood loss, protect against dirt and retain body heat.
