geko™ device

2018 marks the launch of our new website. We hope you like the fresh new look and improved navigation. The site places our clinical partners centre stage, and shines a light on their compelling research and readiness to embrace innovation to establish new therapies that address significant unmet need.

Wound therapy applications device

What it does and how it works

The geko™ device, powered by OnPulse™ neuromuscular electrostimulation technology, is clinically proven to increase blood flow for the promotion of wounds healing and the reduction of oedema.

The size of a wrist-watch and worn at the knee, the geko™ device gently stimulates the common peroneal nerve activating the calf and foot muscle pumps, resulting in increased venous arterial and microcirculatory blood flow1,2,3.
