Vibe-ing, is a wearable self-healing tool that addresses physical ailments such as pain, sports injuries, and bone density loss. The garment is made of merino wool and embedded in the wool are circuits that sense touch to activate vibration actuators on specific areas of the body.

This self-healing tool was created by Eunjeong Jeon, Kristi Kuusk, Martijn Ten Bhömer, and Jesse Asjes as part of a Smart Textile Services (CRISP) project in 2013.
