Regenerative medicine unites doctors, scientists, engineers, and others to accelerate healing processes.
When a device is implanted in a human body, there is always a distinct reaction of the body’s immune system, often resulting in a thick layer of scar tissue surrounding the implant. With device miniaturization and by providing a ‘biomimetic’ device encapsulation, this body reaction will be reduced.
The technology can prevent ongoing tissue damage and degeneration before an issue becomes too large to fix.
With differing cultural attitudes towards tissue donation and transplantation, be prepared for some complex hurdles.
