It simulates light walking which activates the Calf Muscle Pump (CMP). The CMP is often considered as the body’s secondary heart*. As long as the leg is active, the CPM pumps the venous blood from the foot back up towards the heart. However, as soon as the leg becomes inactive, the blood circulation is reduced significantly.
StepIt™ is unique in that respect that it simply imitates what Mother Nature created, an absolutely natural way of stimulates and increase the blood circulation. The pedal was invented by the Swedish Professor Christer Busch at the University Hospital in Uppsala, Sweden. It is clinically proven to increase the blood circulation and decrease any swelling in the lower leg. It was developed for people that are, for one or another reason, unable to walk at any given time.
It can be used at home, in the office, in an airplane, in a car, or anywhere it is needed. Now sold and shipped from Florida, USA
IMPORTANT 1: Low Spring Resistance – StepIt was designed to increase the blood circulation in the lower leg, it was not designed to increase the muscle mass. By purpose, the Pedal has a low resistance metal spring which also makes it possible for people with restricted or low muscle strength in their legs to use it. The resistance has no impact on the blood circulation, it is the simulated walking motion that will drive the blood towards the heart.
IMPORTANT 2: Regardless your shoe size, the pedal comes in one size and will fit, with or without shoes on. For the best result, we do recommend that the pedal will be used frequently (several times a day) and at least 8-10 minutes each time. However, we can not guarantee any results and we always recommend the user to consult her/his doctor. The pedal is designed to be used when seated and never when you stand up.
