Originaltext des IF Design Award 2017 in Englisch:
The Curasul® NPWT device is intended to generate a sub-atmospheric pressure to promote wound healing using Negative Pressure Wound Therapy. The generated negative pressure at the wound leads, amongst others, to a controlled contraction of wound edges, active drainage of wound exudate and promotes the generation of granulation tissue. The Curasul® NPWT device consists of a reusable pump, which can be disinfected, attached to a single-use exudate canister. The main concept focus is on the usability, especially the canister handling and the easy to use graphical interface.
