The Circulation Booster is a medical device designed to increase leg circulation. It uses Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to stimulate the muscles in your feet and lower legs to help maintain healthy legs. By placing your bare feet on each of the footpads, therapeutic electrical impulses stimulate the nerve endings on the soles of your feet which in turn contracts and relaxes the muscles in the lower legs to increase circulation.
Using the Circulation Booster for as little as 20-30 minutes each day may help maintain healthy circulation in your legs and provide relief from swollen feet and ankles and tired, aching and ankles. For more information or a demonstration of the Circulation Booster please call (250) 339-4563.
