Welded Sports Medicine Wrap

The Challenge

Identify the performance specifications between the design firm and the OEM to provide a welded sports medicine compression therapy wrap. Goals were to achieve a 40% cost reduction over their current patented design because of price pressures and competition – while at the same time increasing performance and comfort.

The Solution

Created five complete concept models with two base materials; one inner liner material for comfort and an outer material for durability, and designed for manufacturing with sophisticated tooling resulting in decreased labor.

The Features
  • RF welded
  • Sewn finishes
  • Inner liner for comfort
  • Tubing orientation for ease of set-up and use
  • Quick connect & disconnect from power source
The Reaction

"Product performance met specifications, cost out initiatives exceeded goal, and increased patient comfort and usability."
