PAU Technology Faculty Biomedical Engineering Department faculty member Prof. Dr. Ahmet Koluman and his students; Mahmed Sari Njjar and Rezzan Zengin won the WIPO Best Academician Invention Gold Award with the dressing system they developed called “Smart Dressing”. 'Smart Dressing', a system developed for the healing of diabetic wounds, is a system designed to reduce healing time in chronic and diabetes wounds and to increase patient comfort by reducing signs of inflammation. It was developed by combining the physical forces of electrical stimulation with the clinical effects of chitosan in wound healing to accelerate wound healing and create an antimicrobial effect.
The patent named Graphene-Magnetic Nanoparticle Composite Artificial Eardrum” developed by PAU Technology Faculty Biomedical Engineering Department Lecturer Assoc. Dr. Cumhur Gökhan Ünlü and students; Aleyna Akçay, Çiğdem Yener, Elif Gökoğlan, Hatice Dilay Yazıcı, Hatice Nur Koyun, Sinem Karatekin, won the gold medal at ISIF'21. The main objective of the invention is to produce an artificial ear membrane modeling the operation of the eardrum, which can be a solution for patients with hearing impairment by using the possibilities brought by nanotechnology, and to develop this design as a Cochlear Implant.
