New Skin ... Faster Than Ever

New Skin … Faster Than Ever

The ReSkin Device is an innovative medical tool that can help burn victims make recovery faster with the help of skin grafts. Essentially, stem cells are harvested and then made to grow as skin in a special incubator. This special formula is then sprayed onto the victim requiring the graft. The time taken for the initial process is under two hours, which is significantly faster than the current methods. What is interesting is that the entire healing process takes about a week and is relatively painless. Super!

Easy Pain Relief

Easy Pain Relief

I’ve just been through a painful patch of wound dressing and using awkward bandages, which is why I know that an improvement in design is needed. Although meant to be used as a Pain Relief Patch (for muscle pains), The Rolling Patch concept can be extended for all kind of bandages and First Aid dressing concepts. You can alter the length of the patch and trim to the requisite length, avoiding wastage and promoting easy application. Super!

The Printable Prosthetic

The Printable Prosthetic

Printhesis started as a project to develop a new prosthetic limb for one girl but resulted in a revolutionary design that’s made more affordable and available thanks to 3D printing. Noticing that the girl had replaced her expensive, heavy fiberglass/titanium limb with simplistic pliers because it was lighter and faster to use,  designer Roel Deden recreated the functionality in a cheaper printable solution with the same ergonomics and modularity of her original prosthesis. The price savings? Over $8000!

Next-Gen Neck Support

Next-Gen Neck Support

One look at Handsome’s modern Neck Brace design and its focus is on lightness and discretion becomes apparent. While neck braces are the simplest solution for stabilizing the head, they’re often the most obvious and cumbersome. To combat this problem, the new design utilizes an open and lightweight nylon structure weighing in at just 80 grams. It not only feels cooler but is more comfortable by placing the weight of the head on the sternum rather than the collarbone.

The World's First COOL Wheelchair

The World’s First COOL Wheelchair

Inspired by a spinal injury of his own, designer Andrew Florence set out to redesign the wheelchair as we know it. The result is the Carbon Black Wheelchair. Made by F1 engineers from F1 spec carbon fiber, the sleek and sexy design aims to not only enhance usability with lightness and rigidity, but change the existing perceptions of wheelchairs and their users. It’s the ultimate in medical mobility for independent users to whom style matters as much as practicality. I hope I never need one, but if I do… I hope I’m rolling in this!

The HexSkin

The HexSkin

Quite recently I had a massive fall and busted open my knee. The wound was deep, wide and the kinds that cannot be stitched. I have to admit, that I am ticked at the primitive ways my wounds are dressed. It’s the same old sterile gauze and cotton with Hydrogen Peroxide and Anti-bacterial ointments. I could do with the funky styling of the HexSkin, which is a nurturing bandage that dissolves over the skin.
