Powered by OnPulse™ technology, the non-invasive geko™ device
triggers the body's built in mechanisms to increase blood
circulation. Small electrical impulses gently stimulate the common
peroneal nerve which in turn activates the muscle pumps of the
lower leg that return blood towards the heart. In this way,
neuromuscular stimulation in the lower limb emulates the process
normally achieved by walking (up to 60%) but without the patient
having to move or exert energy and without discomfort.
A simple, self-adhesive device that is applied to the back of
each knee, the disposable, one-size-fits-all geko™ device is
designed to avoid the need for more complex procedures.
