Welcome to the geko website

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.

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 easy-to-use 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.
