About the client
ElastiMed is an Israeli startup, maker of the world’s first robotic stocking designed to treat lymphatic and venous diseases. ElastiMed’s proprietary technology uses Artificial Muscles (EAPs), which contracts and expands when stimulated by an electric pulse, creating a sequential massage on the leg that mimics rhythmic calf muscle contractions to improve circulation.
Target use case segmentation
Patients suffering venous and lymphatic conditions, as a result of sports injuries,
chronic wounds, Edema swelling or blood clots.
The challenge was to optimize for adaptive active foot compression, while maximizing comfort for diverse wearer sizes.
We applied a smart 3D weaving technique to adapt the fabric to multiple user sizes and requirements. We integrates several complex textile methods, from intricate weaving to incorporating gluing techniques with other materials, like plastic components, to offer a sleek, wearable therapy device, which continuously massages the legs, while ensuring effective circulation in the legs.
