 Interested? Please contact: Melanie Jeske

We are looking to recruit moms and moms-to-be that have had experience with compression devices (or stockings) during their pregnancy to prevent deep vein thrombosis, or clotting in the legs. We are working with a team of bioengineers and textile designers who are developing a wireless device that would allow users to maintain mobility a bit longer. During the group interview, we will ask open ended questions about DVT prevention strategies you’ve been prescribed, your experiences with current technologies, and your thoughts on a new technology being developed by our team. We are offering $50 Amazon Giftcards for participation, and the focus groups will last approximately 60 minute.

The study is funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering and has been approved by the Drexel University Institutional Review Boards. The study is led by Dr. Kapil Dandekar and Dr. Kelly Joyce, both researchers at Drexel University.”

Mel Jeske, is a researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, but currently located in Philadelphia working on a study at Drexel University.
