    The wristwatch sized device will be able to help prevent deep vein thrombosis by stimulating the muscles and increasing blood flow in the femoral vein.
    The device will be self-adhesive and will not require wires or leads. It will be meant to be wrapped around a lower knee where it will use electrical signals to stimulate the peroneal nerve, increasing blood flow and helping to discourage clots.
