The geko™ device is muscle pump activator technology. This device provides a small electrical impulse to a nerve behind the knee that stimulates the calf and foot muscle pump resulting in an increase in blood flow back to the heart. The geko™ device generates 60% of the blood flow1 benefits of walking. It does this by activating the foot and lower leg muscles to help pump blood through the veins (up out of the legs and back to the heart), also improving blood flow through the arteries and to the skin and wound through the micro-circulation.
