New Spray-on Skin gun for Burn Victims will leave you Speechless
Get ready to be completely amazed. Scientists have created a gun that sprays new, stem-cell infused skin onto a wound, which essentially speeds up the healing process to only a matter of hours. It literally sprays new skin cells onto burn victims to re-grow skin.
It’s all part of the vision of the $250-million Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine , started in 2008, to help develop therapies for the regeneration of skin, bones, muscles, tendons, nerves and blood vessels, as a way to heal wounded soldiers (as well as victims of serious injuries)faster and more effectively than with conventional treatments.
The device is essentially a spray gun that works by using stem cells from the patient’s healthy skin and mixing it with a solution to come up with the spray paint.
The gun is still in the prototype stages and to this day has been used on up to 12 patients successfully. In the video below you’ll meet a man who suffered 2nd degree burns and thanks to this tech was sprayed Friday and was released on Monday, only 3 days later.
This is really mind-blowing technology… Now if they can only work on a cancer-zapper or something
