Project Description: Thrombus Prevention Device

Team IVI designed a medical thrombosis prevention prototype to decrease the risk of lower-extremity venous thrombosis, blood clots in the leg veins of human individuals. It improves blood circulation by applying pressure to different parts of the patient’s lower extremities in a timed sequence. The parts of the device include two cuffs: one for the upper thigh and another around the foot along with a controller to synchronize the operation with an air pressure supply unit. It allows medical professionals to conduct clinical trials and produce documentation to assess the effectiveness and safety of the device.
