A Spray can Repair Body PartsScientists from Newcastle University have developed a spray which can repair injured body parts, heal wounds, prevents tooth enamel erosion and post-surgery complications. Researchers also developed a spray-on bandage to keep minor cuts and scrapes free from bacterial infections.



Made from a plastic type called polyethylene glycol, which is used in Lycra, this spray is applied on the wounds and within five minutes starts functioning to repair wounds.  After the wound absorbs the thick liquid spray, the plastic tries to pull the ends of the wound together to help it and prevent infection.

 


Scientists at Kings College London and Imperial College London are trying to develop a spray that can prevent damage to the outer coating of teeth or enamel. The spray is inclusive of a calcium type which repairs any exposed dentin and the enamel. In addition, scientists have also created a non-stick coating that will prevent adhesion between the organs after surgery.
