Abstract [sv]

There is something magical about shoes…

They can create an irresistible desire or be the one thing that we want to get rid of the most at the end of a long day.

When people by shoes the chose more out of appearance rather then comfort. The result is a fact. The feet feel tired and soar after a couple of hours and the only thoughts are about the aching feet that firmly object to the way there being treated. Who will say no to a relaxing foot massage in this moment?

…Sometimes they seem to have shrunken after a couple of hours…

Does your legs feel heavy and swollen when you are sitting down for a couple of hours, maybe in front of the computer or during a flight? Do you have or are you starting to get visible veins alongside your legs? Do your feet often turn cold?

Then maybe you are one of the 40 % in Sweden who suffers from reduced circulation of the blood, a so called vein insufficiency.

This projects aims to find a solution that will ease the pain for a foot that feels tired and soar, beside this a solution that also increases the blood circulation in the legs during a longer time sitting down.

The work has been carried out according to the principles of DPD - Dynamic Product Development (Ottosson, 2002). The project started with an idea and resulted in a product that is ready for the market.

The project has resolved in two different solutions hence the problem was separated into two that would hopefully be introduced on the market shortly:

Solution one is a massage slipper Njuta (English = Enjoy) that easy and quickly eases the pain in the feet with an adjustable foot massage.

The tramp machine Cirkulera (English= Circulate) is used to keep the blood circulation going and prevent possible complaint. The solution activates the muscle pump so it can help to press the blood back up to the heart through the veins and this will prevent the blood from in slogging in the feet and legs.
