About us

ElastiMed offers the next generation of smart medical devices. Combining innovative material technology, ElastiMed’s first application is a smart, wearable, active compression device for improving circulation in the legs. Our team has developed a patent protected solution, to manipulate Artificial Muscles or EAPs (Electro Active Polymers) for integration in a new generation of smart medical devices. Established in 2015, and backed by the Trendlines Medical Incubator, Pix Vine Capital and private investors, ElastiMed is an Israeli medical device startup. Additional applications utilizing its novel technology include compression devices for different body parts and other medical and non-medical products.
