This paper discusses how COMSOL Multiphysics modeling software allows for design ideas to be validated through computer simulation. The simulations generated show the Organic Electrochemical Field Effect Transistor (OECT) with a Poly(imide) (PI) polymer microfluidic membrane, a Sodium Chloride electrolyte with pure gold contacts would be able to monitor the hydration level at the wound bed, the rate of Cl- ionic movement, and voltage changes as an external electrical signal is applied. This concept would lead to an improved wound healing experience for patients with chronic skin ulcers.
