Getting healed in a video game is a snap. Just grab a “first aid kit” or “med pack” and half your life’s back and you’re immediately ready to get back to killing zombie dinosaurs. In real life, however, healing takes time, doctors and hassle…and robot ninjas just aren’t going to wait for months of recovery.
But a new healing stem-cell spray is getting us one step closer to instant healing. The spray, developed by the University of Utah, is undergoing testing with small wounds, but has proven very effecting in speeding up healing times. It uses a mixture of the patent’s own stem cells and platelets, combined with calcium and thrombin, to create a gelatin-like mix. It’s then sprayed on wounds with a long needle.
