Device for improving circulation in the legs utilizes Makrolon®
Poor circulation can lead to conditions that negatively impact a patient’s quality of life. ElastiMed is utilizing innovative materials in a smart, wearable, active compression device that aims to improve circulation in the legs.
Traditional solutions suffer from a 60% non-compliance rate. We wanted our device to be easy to wear and fit comfortably. With the materials we selected, we were able to design a device that is highly effective, easy to wear and does not disrupt the patient’s lifestyle, a key element in promoting compliance.
We’ve seen firsthand how advances in technology are making it possible to shift treatment from a clinical setting toward home healthcare. ElastiMed’s device illustrates the role materials play in designing devices that are lightweight, comfortable and look good, making them more appealing to patients.
Our collaboration with ElastiMed is an excellent example of our commitment to our customer’s success, as well as our dedication to helping improve patient experience through the use of our materials.
