The firefly™ device increases blood circulation to recovering muscles and reduces some muscles soreness from high intensity exercise.
Blood transports the nutrients required to rebuild body tissue and helps expel metabolic waste from tissues, including muscle. (References 1,2,3,4)
Speeding up the body’s recovery process allows muscles to adapt and respond quicker, meaning an athlete can return to training earlier to improve performance.
Time is a limiting factor in many athletes’ lives and recovery is likely to be the first element neglected. The firefly™ device is portable and easily fits in to your lifestyle making it convenient when your body needs a boost! Use it in the office, sitting on a flight or relaxing at home.
The firefly™ device increases blood flow to the injured area which may reduce swelling and aid recovery from strains and sprains. The increased blood flow may also help repair microscopic muscle damage caused by overtraining.
For more serious injuries we urge you to consult a doctor or physiotherapist before using firefly™ or our sister device – geko™. Information about the types of injuries and post-surgery applications treated by geko™ and how to access is available at www.gekodevices.com.
