Scientist Have Created a Glue Gun to Replace Stitches Which Peels Off Once Healed


There's nothing worse than getting stitches, they can be painful, they often leave scars, and removing them can be just as painful as receiving them. And while medical science has come up with alternatives to stitches for smaller wounds, they're still often a requirement for bigger injuries. 

But researchers at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology may have developed an alternative to stitches — a human glue gun. According to Prof. Boaz Mizrahi, head of the Biomaterials Laboratory of the Technion, their glue gun could replace both stitches and sealant used on both external and internal injuries.
