ElastiMed’s revolutionary technology manipulates existing Electro Active Polymers (EAPs) technology into thin, linear actuators, for integration in numerous healthcare devices. Highly suitable for wearable devices, the EAPs expand and contract when stimulated by an electric field. Elastimed’s first application, a smart, active compression device, integrates these smart EAP bands by wrapping them around the leg, causing them to squeeze and massage the patient’s leg, mimicking rhythmic calf muscle contractions to promote fluid movement in the leg. The controlled sequential contractions can achieve pressure of up to 60 mmHg with high precision, to apply a highly effective clinical treatment. The comfortable device massages the patient’s legs continuously, to increase healing efficiency, while requiring low energy consumption. The device is IoT compatible, integrating sensors for data generation, and compliance monitoring.
This innovative use of the EAPs can be applied in any of a number of additional applications, including compression devices for different body parts, smart tourniquets, active bandages, haptic devices, smart clothing and more.
