Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, more commonly known as EDS, is a collection of connective genetic tissue disorders. There are many types, but the most common is the hypermobile type (hEDS).
hEDS can be characterised by stretchy skin, long term pain in muscles and joints, hypermobility of the joints, and fatigue.
The Fatigue Toolkit is a collection of products designed to assist the management of fatigue caused by Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and help target the underlying causes.
The ankle devices stimulate tendons in the ankle, which will reduce the irregular gait patterns that result from hypermobility, thus reducing pain and fatigue.
The hip device is a wearable sensor which will detect the fatigue level of the user throughout the day. This data will be sent to the accompanying app on the users phone, allowing them to gain insight to their current fatigue level and its causes.
