Fibrenamics Electrosocks project, addressed in Antena 1

Developed in partnership between Barcelcom and Fibrenamics - University of Minho, the Electrosocks project was highlighted in the 90 Segundos de Ciência program of Antena 1.

The project aimed at developing a portfolio of personalized and multifunctional prototypes for the health and well-being, particularly for elite athletes.

The developed prototypes were comprised of functional materials and structures, allowing for the compression and electrostimulation of well-defined body areas depending on the affected part (ankle, toes, sole), promoting return of lymph and blood current at the same time that it increases the stimulation of the muscle as a way for a fast recuperation. In addition to the functions connected to the comfort, such as thermoregulation and moisture management, prototypes also included electrostimulation at defined places in order to improve the blood circulation and to avoid the appearance of swelling and pain as well as for prevention of all symptoms associated with such pathologies.

You can hear the full interview conceived by Vânia Pais, Technology Researcher on Biotechnology at Fibrenamics, to the program 90 Segundos de Ciência of Antena 1here.
