Firstkind Ltd, innovator and manufacturer of the clinically proven geko™ device – a ground-breaking advanced therapy for chronic venous leg ulcer healing – is seeking senior tissue viability nurses, willing to embrace and drive innovation advance, to join its Partner-With-Us program.
The Partner-With-Us program precedes the imminent publication of a statistically significant randomised controlled study that compares the rate of wound healing in chronic venous leg ulcer patients receiving the geko™ device as an adjunct to compression therapy, compared to compression therapy alone.
A transformative innovation, the geko™ device is a small, self-adhesive, wearable neuromuscular electro-stimulator (NMES) that is applied to the skin just below the knee, over the head of the fibula. It delivers a gentle intermittent electrical pulse, once per second, to the common peroneal nerve. This elicits a muscular twitch that activates the calf and foot muscle pumps, increasing venous, arterial, and microvascular blood flow – transporting oxygenated blood to the wound bed and edge to promote wound healing.
In addition to the benefit of better patient outcomes and the release of significant cost savings for primary care, TVNs keen to join the Partner-With-Us program – to drive innovation advance – will gain:
• Early access to evaluate the geko™ device
• RCN accredited user training
• The opportunity/option – through a comprehensive handrail of support – to generate and present patient use data at local and national level.
If you would like to know more about the Partner-With-Us program, and what the geko™ device can do for your patients, please email: Fiona.Young@firstkindmedical.com. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
