Scientists based in Philadelphia unveiled an artificial womb undergoing testing on fetal lambs. With a prediction from one of the researchers that the technology could be ready for human testing in three to five years, artificial wombs suddenly became the most unexpected rage of 2017. But what sort of artificial wombs might realistically be a part of healthcare in the near future?
This concept incubator would be able to grow babies for 9 months in your living room. The product is just a concept that was thought up by students at Product Design Arnhem but in the future, this could be a possibility. Researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have successfully delivered lambs that had gestated in a “biobag” filled with amniotic fluid. The “biobags” have never been tested on humans but the technology is advancing.
