The WARP 75 light delivery system is a wound-healing device made by Quantum Devices Inc. of Barneveld, Wis. The device is derived from a light delivery system providing High Emissivity Aluminiferous Luminescent Substrate, or HEALS technology to grow plant experiments in space. It is a small 3.5-inch by 4.5-inch (90 by 145-millimeter) portable, flat array of special, lot-set-aside, chip-on-board mount Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). A nurse practitioner places the WARP 75 on the outside of a patient's cheek where it shines for just over a minute each day, promoting wound healing and preventing mouth sores caused by radiation and chemotherapy. NASA's Innovative Partnerships Program works with industry and commercial partners to spinoff space technology and adapt it for new, innovative applications. Credit: NASA/Higginbotham
