Hospital applications device

What it does and how it works

The geko™ device, powered by OnPulse™ neuromuscular electrostimulation technology, is clinically proven to increase blood flow1 to help prevent and treat a range of acute medical conditions.

The size of a wrist watch and worn at the knee, the battery powered, daily disposable geko™ device gently stimulates the common peroneal nerve activating the calf and foot muscle pumps, resulting in increased blood flow in the deep veins of the calf2.
