Jabil, one of the world’s most technologically advanced manufacturing solutions providers, helped Recovery Force develop the platform technology, which embeds shape-changing memory fibres 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, according to a press release from Jabil. This ensured the wearable technology was rigid enough to include pulsating wires without compromising flexibility or comfort.
“Our technology lets patients and consumers be mobile, giving them a much better experience and quality of life after surgery, sports performances or other activities,” said co-founder and CEO Matt Wyatt, Recovery Force.
Still, leaving the wires and tubes behind was no easy feat.”We needed help to accelerate the technology yet struggled to find the right mix of capabilities,” explained co-founder and EVP Matt Wainscott, Recovery Force. “What we really needed was a total turnkey solution,” he added. Not only did Jabil understand the challenges of textile-integrated electronics, a team of global experts were adept at adhering to strict quality guidelines and ISO 13485:2016 certification.
“Jabil and Recovery Force have developed a medical device to reduce healthcare costs by improving patient outcomes and compliance, which has taken our products to the next level,” concluded Wainscott.
Recovery Force’s compression back device is targeted for release in the first half of 2019, followed by a calf device later in the year (PC)
