The Future Of No Needles
Star Trek should possibly win a Nobel Prize for inspiring so many inventions. Another tool used by the communicators in space was the hypospray. Without the need for a needle for injection, this device delivered medicine through the skin. The user could program the machine to deliver any medication the patient needed. At MIT, scientists developed a needless injection system in much the same way the hypospray works in Star Trek. The billion-dollar idea was inspired by the series. The device uses extremely high pressure to deliver liquid medication. Without using a needle, it penetrates the skin. It helps lessen anxiety and pain in patients who fear needles. If you’re one of these people, this could change your life. You can finally say no to needles (News MIT).
