CMU Grad Develops Tool to Test for Common Condition 'Nobody Cared' About!

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.

To date, the blanche test (a simple finger pressure test) used to currently diagnose bedsores has not changed much in a generation, even though the results can be unreliable and really do not work well with darkly pigmented skin.

Did you know this problem has been around at least since the Egyptians? Yes. There is mummy evidence.

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.

She is CEO of her company Rubitection Inc. Her vision is to make the Rubitection Assessment System the global standard solution for early bedsore detection and management.

Science and technology topics include: health, biology, technology, entrepreneurship and careers

Program Capacity: 15
