Smart socks to treat chronic venous disease

As blood circulates through the veins, it passes through a series of one-way valves. If these valves, or the veins, become enlarged, blood flow is reduced. This in turn can lead to a wide variety of conditions, such as varicose veins, lymphedema and deep vein thrombosis. When not properly treated, some types of circulation problems can lead to amputation, pulmonary embolism, stroke and even death. To prevent this, doctors recommend the use of compression devices for people who have circulation problems. One common complaint, however, is that these are uncomfortable and difficult to put on and take off. As a result, many people who need them stop wearing them. Now, Israeli start-up ElastiMed has developed a smart compression device that can help improve circulation in the legs.
