A Palestinian girl, no more than seventeen years old, invented a device to treat clinical ulcers, which are an opening in the body resulting from a lack of proper blood flow and thus the death of layers of skin. This is because the skin is under pressure from the bed, wheelchair, or any other inelastic surface. For a long time.

Dalal Badwan said that this device treats the elderly, disabled patients, and those who do not have the ability to move.

  Badwan explained the mechanism of action that when the patient lies down on the bed for two hours, the sensor inside the device identifies the high-pressure area, and in this case the blood flows normally and avoids causing any swelling or redness, and thus no symptoms of clinical ulcers appear.

She explained that the device consists of an air mattress, pressure sensors, and massage parts. Pointing out that doctors must place the patient on the air mattress so that it works automatically.

She stated that her device competed with many inventions and won third place at the level of the Jerusalem Suburbs Directorate.

It is worth mentioning that the idea of the device is humanitarian and may help many patients who suffer from ulcers. This device can serve many groups in society as it works automatically without the need for a specialist.
