Turns out I was quite right. Fittingly It’s a technology developed by NASA that is now being adapted to do just that.  Now it might only be a matter of time before every hospital has one, heck maybe even every household. The need to care for a population with chronic wounds is a growing challenge that requires innovative approaches. Two approaches that specifically address the identified pathophysiological processes involved in wound healing are hyperbaric oxygen therapy and light therapy.
