Just joined this forum as a fellow lymphoedema sufferer. I have it only in my feet, which makes walking in heels tough as a 20 year old!
But anyway, I'm at uni doing Product Design and for my final year project I would like to make a portable device which a user can sit on which elevates the users leg or both legs up to their required height (will be adjustable) and then sit or lie down with their leg elevated comfortably to ease the swelling.
( I've noticed that recliners or poofs aren't actually tall enough to help the swelling go down, and I end up piling loads of cushions up to get my leg high enough lol)
I want the product to be really comfortable, adjustable so that the majority of people can use it, compact and most of all help people with leg problems.
This is just an initial idea and I would like to welcome any criticism or ideas towards this?
