IMMU is a system of airtight chambers located under an elastic fabric of sleeve. You can use IMMU to create a wave-like massage on your arm.

The sleeve’s main functionality is to support a proper activity of the lymphatic system in the body. Lymph nodes are an important part of the lymphatic system. They help maintain a proper functioning of the immune system which protects the body against infections and cleans it out of toxins. Liquid circulation disorder inside the lymphatic system can be problematic and can lead to lymphedema. Lymphedema is a common problem among women who have undergone a breast removal surgery reffered to as mastectomy. Often, during such surgeries lymph nodes have to be removed in order to prevent cancer cells spreading around the body.

Most commonly, lymphedema is treated by massage and the use of tourniquets. Our sleeve is a solution which supports these treatments.

Thanks to Arduino board located on top of the hand, it is easy to control the cycle of massages and upload new programmes. We think that in the near future, doctors could be the ones to control the frequency and type of treatments.

Immu is easy to transport and convenient to use repeatedly during the day without a need of assistance and without much effort. IMMU looks more like functional sportswear than medical equipment. It presents a modern vision of medical design which besides aesthetics enters more deeply into a relationship with the human body by taking care of its health and well-being. IMMU represents a system that can be applied into a whole set of new objects.
