Historical File-Band Aid

I have been reading a story set in the future called Space Nuts At Light Speed by Simon Cooke. Just like in this story, I have written a historical file about an object we use on earth, that someone could read about in the future.

Band-Aids are used when people might fall over and get a little scrape.The Band-Aid was invented in 1920 by Earle Dickson, who's wife always got cuts and burns while cooking. Earle was an employee at Johnson & Johnson, when he passed his idea on to his employer he started to produce and market the Band-Aid. Earle Dickson had a successful career and became the vice-president of Johnson & Johnson, then retired in 1957.
In the future I don't think people will use band-aids, maybe by then someone would have invented a machine that you can just put your sore under and it will be okay.
