Revolutionary Injectable Prosthesis Speeds Up Tissue Repair

Injectable tissue prosthesis for instantaneous closed-loop rehabilitation

Researchers have developed an innovative injectable tissue prosthesis made of a soft hydrogel combined with gold nanoparticles, allowing instantaneous bidirectional electrical conduction within the neuromuscular system. Unlike previous patch-type devices, this injectable prosthesis conforms to rough, narrow, or deep tissue surfaces. Tested in rats with severe muscle injury, the prosthesis, when injected, accelerates tissue repair and has shown promising results in early-stage rehabilitation.
