Now you can purchase a “smart” sock to improve circulation in your legs. Designed by an Israeli startup, this sock is perfect for athletes and pregnant women and more.

Writing at NoCamels, Arielle Ankri explains:

ElastiMed’s sock uses battery-operated technology to activate electric pulses that compress and massage the legs to stimulate circulation. The pulses mimic contractions in the calf muscles that in turn increase blood flow.

The smart sock is aimed at athletes, pregnant women whose feet and legs often swell from fluid retention, and patients suffering from chronic wounds and other disorders such as varicose veins, Lymphedema (damage to the lymph nodes), and venous thrombosis. Left untreated, some of the conditions can lead to significant pain, itching, swelling and other dangerous medical complications.
