WeControl is about society becoming more self-reliant. We want to become less dependent of companies that provide us with primary needs, such as health care. By taking control over our own lifes, we will regain our freedom and independence.
Justyna Strociak and Magda Gąsiorowska have created IMMU, a sleeve to prevent lymphedema. Lymphedema is the problem of ineffective circulation of the lymph nodes throughout the body and is common amongst women who have had breast removal surgery. Lymph nodes are needed to cleanse the body and protect it from infections.
IMMU is a sleeve that includes a pumping system, which uses air to imitate the effect of massage. This will stimulate the circulation of lymph nodes, thus preventing lymphedema. IMMU gives the user freedom to do their own massages at the time of their choosing, which fits the trend WeControl. The user will thus be less dependent on companies that provide health care on their own terms.
