Challenge: Long Distance Travel

Pax crushed his spinal cord in a training accident at the US Air Force Academy a very long time ago. He uses a variety of wheelchairs for mobility. 

Pax has poor circulation in his lower legs and easily gets cellulitis after traveling. He has been avoiding travel to important meetings all over the world as a result. The Pax Team created an ingenious wearable, battery-powered solution for him that provides sequential compression of his legs to assist with blood flow on a regular basis during air travel.
