Circulation Pro produces controlled electrical impulses through the feet via its two independent foot pads. This Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to the muscles causes localised muscular contractions. These passive, effortless contractions create a pumping effect,helping to move blood through the veins and restore venous flow. The two independently moving foot pads gently tilt the feet backward and forward, replicating the movement of walking. This movement is called ankle dorsiflexion and it manually contracts the calf muscle pump and helps propel blood back to heart, thereby reducing swelling and pain in the legs.
Circulation Pro also offers TENS therapy via its re-usable electrode patches. These can be applied to the arms, back, etc, not just the legs. Controlled electrical impulses stimulate the nerves below the skin and encourage the body to use its natural pain response mechanisms (pain-gating, endorphins) to relieve pain.
