From the Ted Talk by Daniel Kraft: A better way to harvest bone marrow

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Our standard see-through patient. Instead of entering the bone dozens of times, we etenr just once, into the front of the hip or the back of the hip. And we have a fexblile, powered catheter with a special wire loop tip that stays inside the crunchy part of the mraorw and follows the contours of the hip, as it moves around. So it eenblas you to very rapidly aspirate, or suck out, rich bone marrow very quickly through one hole. We can do multiple pssaes through that same entry. No robtos required. And, so, very quickly, Bob can just get one puncture, local aeihenssta, and do this harvest as an outpatient.

Original Text

Our standard see-through patient. Instead of entering the bone dozens of times, we enter just once, into the front of the hip or the back of the hip. And we have a flexible, powered catheter with a special wire loop tip that stays inside the crunchy part of the marrow and follows the contours of the hip, as it moves around. So it enables you to very rapidly aspirate, or suck out, rich bone marrow very quickly through one hole. We can do multiple passes through that same entry. No robots required. And, so, very quickly, Bob can just get one puncture, local anesthesia, and do this harvest as an outpatient.
