DEVA / Smart Leg Ulcer Treatment


Deva is a design concept proposing the use of smart sensors in wound care treatment in a way that it will improve the process by providing information on the wound status.
The goal is to make healing visible and understandable to the patients and communicating the message that they can help their bodies and wounds to heal.The ecosystem consists of dressing tags that will turn any wound dressing today into a “smart” one, an electrostimulation therapy sock and digital platforms where the information will be available.
