OnPulse™ technology

The OnPulse™ technology is simple and safe. Gentle electrostimulation of the common peroneal nerve, which is located at the back of the knee, causes the muscles in the lower leg to contract. These gentle contractions activate the body's own mechanism for pumping blood back towards the heart at a volume shown to be up to 60% to that of walking - see Trials and results.

The OnPulse™ software ensures the safe, controllable delivery of electrical impulses via the geko™ electrodes. The electrical current is limited to 27mA and the intervals are regulated to repeat the cycle of blood movement every second. These settings have been shown to be the optimal for increased venous return.
