Outline

A cordless air compression leg massager that deals with a wide range of leg problems, including tiredness from standing and post-exercise muscle fatigue. Unlike conventional models, which restricted the location of use because of power and pump cords, this new product focuses on cordless and silent features and can be used in various locations such as at home, while travelling, and in the office. In order to reproduce the techniques learned from massage experts, we pursued the timing, holding, and movements of air compression to achieve a genuine feeling of massage despite the cordless aspect. Application under various conditions was examined by using a material that offers a relaxed feeling, goes well with any type of clothing, and can mold to the wearer's legs.
