3D-PRINTED HEART AND OTHER NEWS
A local startup in Finland called Brinter (bioprinter) promises 3d printing of the heart, drawn from stem cells.
What is the “ink” like? It is a viscous gel. They take skin cell samples from the patient, reprogram them, and turn them into stem cells. The stem cells then fill in the previously printed matrix.
This living tissue makes any desired organ using the patient’s DNA, so there’s no chance of rejection.
The spokesman of this product says, “We are printing life layer-by-layer”.
What is it – an artificial heart?
(If you think that I’ve come to understand the process after simply retelling the story, you’re wrong. But I believe it).
While Brinter can print tissues for research, they cannot print a kidney or heart. But the Finns vow that they will be able to do so in 5 years’ time.
Time will tell.
Goodby Edema – new methods for healing
Jackson Corley came up with a way to leave traditional bandages behind. He weaves them into a cloth.
Body temperature causes it to release negative ions, which then causes molecular vibration and increases circulation.
Blood brings oxygen to the damaged area, reducing swelling. This powerfully accelerates healing, no pills necessary!
Ok. So what?
The difference is a healing time of 5-6 weeks. Some symptoms dissipate in a few hours. Postoperative edema in as little as 8 hours.
At the same time, we bid farewell to the accompanying problems – arthritis, arthrosis, and other autoimmune issues. This innovative bandage isn’t restrictive or tight, either. You simply wrap the damaged area.
Unlike Brinter, this product is available. We can’t wait to get our hands on it, but it’s better to not get injured in the first place.
