A New Intelligent Stocking for Quantification of Edema in the Lower Limbs

Study design

Non-randomized, clinical method comparison (equivalence) study.

About the project


  • To evaluate the Edema Stocking Device as a tool for continuous quantification of edema in the lower limbs.
  • To evaluate the quantification of lower leg volume by means of the Edema Stocking Device compared to water displacement, considered the gold standard method for volume measurement.
