We Now Have Firefly!!

How firefly works

When positioned correctly, firefly effectively delivers a small and painless electrical stimulus to the common peroneal nerve which triggers the calf muscles in your leg to contract and pump blood throughout your lower extremities. 01. firefly Stimulates the Nerve firefly works with the body's own recovery systems to effectively deliver blood and nutrients to the muscles of the lower legs. 02. The Leg Muscles Contract The muscle contractions causes an increase in blood flow similar to walking (up to 60%) 03. Blood Flow Increases The calf muscles controlled by the peroneal nerve begin to contract and pump. 04. Workout Recovery Results Up to a 400% increase in microcirculatory blood flow. Promotes systemic blood flow throughout the rest of the body. Allows for a faster and more efficient recovery after exercise
