Description

Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a method of healing wounds by applying continuous suction to the affected area. Existing NPWT devices are often too expensive and electrically dependent to be used in low-resource settings of developing countries. The UP capstone team designed and developed an easily assembled, mechanical device to increase accessibility to NPWT in developing countries at a more affordable price.
