The first version of the stocking has been designed and developed. It transfers precise measurements of leg volume in real time to any mobile device via a Bluetooth connection. The data is also stored locally on a micro SD card in the stocking as backup.
A mobile app presents a progressive swelling curve that equips the user with the ability to self regulate during exercise, identify the need to elevate or reposition legs in addition to contacting the doctor for medical adjustment.
Recorded data is automatically sent from the user’s mobile device to the hospital via email for observation.
The edema stocking concept has shown desirable and reliable results where clinical evaluations have been initiated during technical development stages.
