As part of an e-textile research project for Smart Textile Services (CRISP), designers Eunjeong Jeon, Kristi Kuusk, Martijn ten Bhömer and Jesse Asjes have developed a therapeutic wearable to treat a variety of physical ailments, including pain, sports injuries, and bone density loss.
Aptly called “Vibe-ing,” the wearable is embedded with circuits that can sense touch and actuate a vibrating motor on specific pressure points on the body.
As our bodies vary in size, the garments must be customized to suit the wearer’s needs and size.
Made from merino wool, the garment is beautifully constructed.
