Clip from Aussie Inventions that Changed the World  |  Season 1  |  Episode 5  |  The History Channel  |  July 22, 2019

Fiona Wood changed the lives of burn victims across the world by developing a spray-on skin using the patient's own skin cells. The invention reduced scarring and recovery time, as well as the amount of healthy skin needed for a donor site. This means those with burns across a large part of their body can be treated much faster and safer. The invention came to prominence following its use by Western Australian medical teams following the 2002 Bali Bombings.
