Acute and chronic wounds have a tremendous impact on patients’ life conditions. As wound healing involves a huge number of biochemical processes, biomedical sensors play a major role for wound monitoring and early detection of infections. This paper describes and discusses the sensors currently under research that can provide invaluable information on the different phases of wound healing. These sensors can allow wound healing to be continuously monitored, thus opening the path for personalized therapies and better patients’ quality of life.
