This project aims to investigate and develop key enabling technologies for future supply chains of customised intelligent medical pressure clothing (CIMPC) for patients suffering varicose veins. Varicose vein is a common chronic venous disease. Wearing medical pressure socks is an effective way to relieve varicose vein. To produce more precise, accurate, and effective medical pressure socks for patients, this project adopts five key technologies, including

1. A new method and algorithm to quickly extract key parameters from the 3D body scanning data for design of CIMPC.

2. CAD/CIM module with the pressure prediction functions for CIMPC.

3. Customised medical compression stockings (MCSs) and pressure monitoring MCSs including sensors, circuits, data transmission and analysis software.

4. Interface for precise pressure-mapping of compression stockings.

5. A novel multi-dimensional adjustable, soft, and morphing leg mannequin for more accurately simulate human legs of different sizes.
