Proposal titleDevelopment of a careful operating debridement device
AbstractLife expectancy in Europe increases steadily. This leads to an increase of age-specific
diseases. To this category come among others diabetes and venous insufficiency. These
ailments are a concomitant of difficult to cure wounds. Extensive wounds can be caused by
diseases such as diabetes and venous insufficiency as well as by accidents e.g. burns, dirt
tattoo etc. Goal of the proposed project is the development of a device to clean extensive
wounds b using a mild water jet which can be used from cutting over to rinsing, washing or
stimulating a wound. It willhave an integrated shielding and exhauster system in order to
avoid contaminating the environs. The complele unit must be compact designed and
affordable to normal doctors in order to guarantee a most broad exploitation. So that as
many sick people as possible can gain the envisaged advantage of the treatment.
