Currently, experts have learned laboratory method for growing human cells and tissues. This is a significant breakthrough in the field of transplantation. However, post-transplant artificially grown tissue although root, but can’t function properly. The reason is that they do not create a natural environment for development. That is, they do not move, do not stretch, deform, as it occurs in the real system of the human body. To solve this problem, scientists from Oxford propose to use robots.
Experts say that mechanical humanoids can become temporary carriers of biological tissues — prior to transplant them to. For this you need to create robots with the same human body structure and mechanics, similar to the workings of the human body. These robots will be used for growing tissues.
In turn, muscle tissue, tendons, dermis will grow and develop as it would develop in the human body. For example, fabrics intended for hand, are grown on the robot arm. Respectively, after transplantation into the natural environment they will operate more efficiently.
The implementation of this idea will be not only a new milestone in the development of medicine. This is another step towards creating biohybrid humanoid — humanoid robots with self-repairing biological tissues, and even organs.
