A discreet, wearable device to support nursing mother in preventing breast engorgement

Ela is a portable device that helps mothers to cure breast engorgement and prevent mastitis during breastfeeding and weaning periods. The product, which embodies traditional methods such as hand massage and heating, blends into mothers’ daily routines thanks to being small and discreet. The warm therapy function and the vibration points that mimic hand massages trigger a ‘let-down reflex’ and soften the breast. Its organic form is designed for a comfortable fit. Ela’s components are washable, maintaining a high level of hygiene. In addition, when the product is used under clothing it can be easily controlled via a mobile application.
