Dr. Sanna Gaspard researched and developed a tool to help with a common problem.
She is a high-tech healer with a passion for entrepreneurship, healthcare, medical devices, and innovation.
She developed a hand-held, battery-operated tool, which measures skin temperature, consistency, and other factors that indicate skin breakdown.

Sanna earned a bachelor of science degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) from the University of Miami. She completed her Masters and PhD in BME at Carnegie Mellon University.
