Star Trek Technology Will Soon Be Making Its Way Into North American Medical Practices

Any person who is desperately afraid of needles will be happy to learn that a new technology is making its way into doctor's offices across Europe right now. It is only a matter of time before these new devices will hit the shores of the United States and that will be good news for millions of needle-phobic people.

Known as the Painless Laser Epidermal System, the device uses a series of tiny lasers to bore extremely small holes into a person's skin. Because the lasers are so fine, the patient does not feel a thing.

The machine very quickly etches a series of tiny holes in the patient's arm. This process happens so quickly, in fact, that the patient is completely unaware it is happening. Immediately after the holes have been made, the device places high molecular weight drugs on top of them so that they can secrete their way into the body.

This device has numerous things to recommend it. First and foremost is its pain-free way of dispensing medication. It is extremely simple to use and because it does not require the use of a needle it can be safely operated by non-medical professionals.

The device is manufactured in Europe by Pantec Biosolutions and has recently received Europe's CE mark of approval. Millions of European residents are now benefiting from this remarkable new technology.

The device uses a special laser to ablate the skin's outer layers in an extremely accurate way and was recently shown off at the Drug Delivery Partnerships conference in 2008 in San Diego, California where it received overwhelming praise. The device uses scanner optics to flexibly create the pore arrays and can be fine tuned to specify the number of arrays needed for a specifically determined drug dose. This little device will make going to the doctor fun again for children who will be able to look forward to the sucker they are going to receive after their visit. Allowing them to focus on their friendship with their doctor instead of the needle they would normally have received for their immunization shot will be a huge relief to nearly every parent. Diabetics will be able to look forward to pain-free insulin injections. The device will enable them to keep their blood sugar levels under much better control.

The bottom line is that this technology will revolutionize the world of medicine. It will make taking medication much simpler for millions of people around the world and minimize needle phobia for them. Going to the doctor will be much easier for people when they do not have to be afraid of receiving a needle.;
