    Abstract [en]

    ”Mechanical Debridement –An ergonomically designed hand tool for wound cleansing” is a final thesis that has been executed independently, during spring semester 2012, by Mikael Johansson in a close collaboration with the other group member Fredrick Ekman. The thesis (22.5 ECTS credits) has been executed as course in the Innovation and Design Engineering program within the Faculty of Technology and Science at Karlstad University.

    The project was carried out as a student project commissioned by Medilink AB which is a small company that manufactures and sells medical equipment. The company has got indications from professionals within the healthcare sector that there is a need for mechanical wound cleansing systems, which could simplify the wound cleansing process.

    A preliminary study, with focus on wound treatment and wound cleansing, was carried out collectively by the group to get a basic understanding of the subject and to find possible problematic areas. In the subsequent research phase the individual part of the project begun, which has a focus on ergonomics and medical equipment. This was conducted with interviews, literature studies and field studies.

    Several different idea generation methods were used to generate many ideas that were reworked into five concrete concepts. In consultation with the supervisor these concepts where evaluated with different concept evaluation methods to choose the most relevant for this project. To further evolve and adapt the concept for the target group, a workshop with nursing students were conducted. This lead to the final concept, an ergonomic, pen-shaped wound cleansing tool.

    In the final phase the chosen concept were developed further by a CAD-model and a physical model to visualize the concept. This physical model was also tested through a validation workshop in order to get feedback regarding the design.
