Hospital applications device
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.
The geko™ device intended use is:
– to increase local blood circulation
– for immediate post-surgical stimulation of the calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis
– stimulation of the calf muscles to prevent venous thrombosis in non-surgical patients at risk for venous thromboembolism
– for the reduction of edema
11 stimulation settings address a wide variation in the responsiveness of patients to stimulation.
Increases blood flow equal to 60%1 of walking in the deep veins of the calf2, where early thrombi form.
Painless 1 Hz muscle contraction every second.
No wires or leads. No tripping hazard. Allows patients to be mobile.
Weighs just 10g. Small, light and comfortable to wear. Quick and easy to fit.
