SpinCare Electrospins And Shoots Wound Dressing

The Nanomedic SpinCare device shoots a kind of artificial skin, a wound care dressing, directly onto the patient. It even allows health practitioners to watch the wound healing below, because it’s translucent.

While the technology, a technique called “electrospinning” that generates nano-fibers from a solution, has been around for a couple of years, the Spincare device is far smaller and much more mobile, Nanocare says. Its small size even allows it to be carried to a patient’s bedside.

“You have this fine whitish thing on that’s fairly robust and seems to cope with most things,” Baljit Dheansa, a doctor in the UK who specializes in burns, told The Guardian, adding that it “does what it says on the tin.”

(Via Futurism.)

Of course, fans of the comics declare that this could be Spider Man!

Older fans perhaps recall Philip K Dick's 1960 novel Dr. Futurity:

Over her lacerated right shoulder he sprayed art-derm; it sealed off the open wound, halted bleeding, and prohibited infection.
