How Circulation Booster® works
The Circulation Booster® is a medical device designed to increase circulation in the lower legs and feet. It uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to work muscles in your feet and lower legs to help counteract stasis and maintain healthy legs. By simply placing your feet on each of the foot pads, therapeutic electrical impulses stimulate the nerve endings on the soles of the feet and the muscles in the lower legs, increasing circulation.
Circulation Booster® has been developed and tested by researchers at leading UK universities. It is the only device of its kind designed to:
- Increase circulation
- Reduce swelling
- Temporary relief of minor aches & pains
- Increase foot temperature
- Increase oxygenated blood in the lower legs & feet In healthy people during use
Working against gravity, the series of muscle driven pumps and one-way valves in your legs act like a “second heart” to continually pump de-oxygenated blood up through your feet and legs, back to the heart. When you sit or stand for prolonged periods, the feet and leg muscles are inactive and blood flow maybe reduced significantly. This can cause discomfort and swelling. When leg health is not maintained due to age or illness, your second heart weakens.
The Circulation Booster® uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) through two large foot pads to stimulate thousands of nerve endings in the soles of your feet. As a result, the foot and calf muscles contract and release to create a pumping action. This activates your second heart to imitate the body’s natural circulatory system in the leg. Using the Circulation Booster® for just 30 minutes per day could help maintain healthy circulation in your lower legs and feet, regardless of your age.
What does it feel like?
You will feel mild impulses in your feet and calf muscles when you first turn the Circulation Booster®. Increase the intensity until your calf muscles gently contract and relax at a comfortable level. You can control the intensity and duration with the easy-to-use remote control. Simply sit back and relax while the soothing impulses refresh and revitalise your feet and lower legs.
Drug free benefits
The Circulation Booster® has helped thousands of people increase their circulation, reduce swelling and sooth achy, heavy legs. London South Bank University research has shown that 40 minutes of inactivity in healthy people, resulted in poorer circulation and swelling in the lower legs and feet. After only 10 minutes of using the Circulation Booster®, all symptoms were significantly improved. The Circulation Booster® is the only circulation device proven to help a healthy you.
