A Swedish company by the name of Biomedical Bonding AB is working on commercializing a high-tech bone patch that is designed to make it easier to fix damaged bones without having to use metal screws and plates, which aren't exactly the most malleable solutions around.

What's great about these bone patches is that they make use of a special resin that hardens under LED light, making it possible for the patch to essentially be stuck onto the desired surgery site with a high degree of accuracy.

Developed by scientists at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology and the Karolinska Institutet, this bone patch is a great example of how high-tech medical and scientific innovation can help forge potential commercial profits whilst also alleviating suffering in patients.
