The firefly™ device stimulates a nerve in your legs, activating several key muscles which directly cause an increase in blood flow while at rest. The firefly™ is a nerve stimulator, so your muscles avoid the fatigue often associated with electrical muscle stimulators.

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.

How firefly works.

The firefly™ functions in 3 simple ways:

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.

    Nerve stimulation
  1. firefly™ Stimulates the Nerve.
    firefly™ works with the bodies own recovery systems to effectively deliver blood and nutrients to the muscles of the lower legs:
  2. Increased bloodflow
  3. The Leg Muscles Contract.
    The muscle contractions causes an increase in blood flow similar to walking (up to 63%).
  4. systemic blood flow
  5. Blood Flow Increases.
    The calf muscles controlled by the peroneal nerve begin to contract and pump.
    • 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

Wear times and sports guidelines

Below you'll find some wearing time guidelines for firefly™. If your sport is not listed below, follow the timings of sports where the exertion levels and length of events are similar. Following the suggested wear times will help you to maximize your recovery and help you optimize your firefly™ battery life.

Foot races, running, and marathons

The speed and distance of your run will determine rate of recovery. firefly™ is beneficial to your recovery after a high exertion run.

For Example: If you run for up to 1 hour then you should use the firefly™ during the recovery period for at least 2 hours. Use the running chart to find your recommended recovery time.
