Accelerated Wound Healing Device Using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) Biostimulation to Support Long Term Human Exploration of Space, Phase I

Metadata Updated: July 17, 2020

Several cases of minor cuts in microgravity have been reported not being able to heal until return to Earth. While the exact cause for the slow healing in space environment is still been theorized, initial studies on cells exposed to micro- and hyper-gravity have suggested that the growth of human cells is heavily regulated by the gravity. As the gravitational force increases or decreases, the cell function responds in a linear fashion. Typically, the faster the cell growth, the quicker the healing process. Thus, development of technologies that can accelerate the wound healing is crucial to NASA's space exploration mission.
