E-Textile Technology Advances Blood-Clot Prevention

Jabil, in collaboration with Recovery Force, is advancing the next-generation of wearable medical technology. Recovery Force’s patented technology delivers mobile compression to enhance circulation. Allegedly, the technology addresses a host of therapeutic conditions, including the prevention of blood clots (DVT), reduction of post-operative pain, and alleviating joint pain and sore muscles.

 

Jabil helped Recovery Force develop this platform technology, which embeds shape-changing memory fibers into various garments and footwear to produce therapeutic compressions. While this achievement on its own is a great clinical advancement, Recovery Force accomplishes this in a comfortable, lightweight and mobile form factor without requiring bladders, pumps, cords or electrical stimulation.
