A preconditioning device to be worn before surgery

Together with Plexaa we created a wearable that runs preconditioning protocols for patients automatically. The device delivers ultra precise and safe preconditioning to the skin so that the patient can run protocols from the comfort of home, the day before surgery.

Empowering the patient to prepare for surgery

The connected app guides patients through the preparation process and device use. A confident patient experience is promoted through clear communication of what to expect and live, real-time reporting of what is happening.

Comfort, simplicity, flexibility and the emotive needs of the user were of primary importance for Plexxa, who believe that user-centric design is the future of health and wellbeing delivery.
