Medical Bio-Engineering Researchers Invent The Skin Cell Gun

   

Something Wonderful From Medical Bio-Engineering Researchers .

Over the years, modern medicine has made some very tremendous strides in the treatment of severe burns and the replacement of the damaged skin using grafts from the patients body. The problem with this is that you need to remove the skin from other areas which is painful and requires hours of surgery.

Researchers are able to grow skin in the laboratory using the patients stem cells but it takes months to grow a large piece of skin and the process is very precise and prone to infection. Now scientists have devised a new way to replace the skin of burn victims and the results are nothing short of miraculous.

The new method uses a new device, namely a skin gun to spray atomized skin cells using the patients own stem cells onto the burn area. New skin forms over the replacement site in days with almost no evidence of the original trauma!

This is medical technology at it’s finest using bio-engineering and mechanical engineering to work together to provide relief to burn victims all over the world.
