Startup RevMedx, which develops products for military medics and members of the emergency services, has created a device that can seal a gunshot wound in 15 seconds, Popular Science reports. The device is called XStat, and its creators are hoping the FDA will approve it for use by medical professionals.




According to Popular Science, the RevMedx team received $5 million from the U.S. Army to finish developing the product. The company also won a seed grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a version of XStat that helps stymie postpartum bleeding.
