There are millions of people worldwide suffering with Psoriasis, a disorder that cannot be cured and itching is a very common problem. People living with a chronic skin condition such as psoriasis and eczema are terribly affected by intense itchiness of the skin. While current treatments are available, they are not sufficient.

Itchiness is a large burden as the itch often can be so intense, that maintaining a normal life can be hard.

Current non-medical solutions for treating itch used by people with psoriasis and AD involve coconut oil, ointments, creams, gels and lotions. Other people use salt baths, sun, mud, cutting their nails short and sleeping with gloves to prevent scratching. Living with these conditions can cause a lack of energy and in many cases depression. People experience frequent social stigma and up to 60% of psoriasis sufferers have symptoms of depression as consequence of a lowered quality of life.

My device solution which will enable people with a skin condition such as psoriasis or eczema, to find new relief from their itch or to live more comfortably with their itch.

Principle:

The concept of this device is based on Vibration to get relief from itching.

Mechanism:

As per sketch there will be a band and some 5 to 10 numbered vibration motors will be connected with this band .These vibration motors will get energy with rechargeable battery. A circuit system will operate the whole
system.

There will be also a wrist band system and this wrist band will work to operate the vibration band remotely.

When someone (suffered with Psoriasis) will wear on this vibration band and wrist band and start it then the vibrations created by the motors will work to get relieve from itching as there will be no need of rubbing or scratching the itching part because due to vibrations the skin will get started vibrating also to get relief from itching.These vibrations will work in this way as if we are rubbing the itchy part but actually the vibrations will work to rub the itchy skin.In this way this device will work.
