VascuCel® is a bio-scaffold material that remains functional, durable and free from calcification. The bio-scaffold is used to repair congenital heart deformities and more complex heart defects, it is also used to reconstruct dysfunctional heart valves and valve leaflets.
The geko™ device, powered by OnPulse™ neuromuscular electro-stimulation technology, is clinically proven to increase blood circulation which can help in a range of conditions. Small electrical impulses gently stimulate the common peroneal nerve behind the knee which in turn activates the calf and foot muscle pumps of the lower leg that return blood towards the heart. In this way, neuromuscular stimulation in the lower limb emulates the process normally achieved by walking (up to 60%) but without the patient having to move or exert energy and without discomfort.
A simple, self-adhesive device that is applied to the back of each knee, the disposable, one-size-fits-all geko™ device is designed to avoid the need for more complex procedures.
