Smart Abdominal Binder
Design Challenge
Compression stockings are commonly used for the treatment of patients with orthostatic hypotension. However, their effectiveness is currently limited by issues with patient compliance. Our team aims to design an easy to use, breathable, non-itchy, pressure-automated compression device to both provide a better user experience and collect data for clinicians looking to customize patient care.
