The name is slightly misleading, but the results aren’t.

It’s being called the “skin gun,” and if it takes off it could revolutionize how burn victims are treated. The invention, which looks and acts more like an airbrush than a gun, uses a patient’s own stem cells (taken from healthy skin), combines them in a solution in the gun, and then sprays them on the burned area. In the small number of patients that have been treated, the results have been nothing short of miraculous: skin that might normally take weeks or months to heal rejuvenates in days. And to the naked eye, signs of the burn are barely visible.

Developed by Dr. Jörg C. Gerlach (above), National Geographic Channel will feature the gun on Monday’s episode of “Explorer” (10 pm ET). Below is the segment:

[WARNING: Contains graphic images of second-degree burns that will undoubtedly make some uneasy. It's important to note, however, that the burns shown are not those of the man featured -- they are used as representations of what his burns might have looked like.]

I hope the progressives don't freak out and ban it because it's been labeled a 'gun'. :lookinup:

WOW ! That was impressive.

I wonder if would heal or generate faster, or if there would be any benefit to a better atomization and spray technique ? Can't wait to see the military applications.

That is amazing. I couldn't help but think back to "I Robot" when Will Smith sprays his bionic arm, very cool.:thumbsup:

It will probably cost too much and not be allowed under Obamacare. They will just go with butter and bandages.
