Firefly Neuromuscular Stimulation
Firefly(TM) Device-A proven recovery tool – Now available in Canada exclusively at Accelerated.
Built for the PROs, designed for everyone.
WHAT IS FIREFLY?
The Firefly is a small battery operated neuromuscular stimulation device worn bilaterally just below the knee on the fibular head, just below the knee on the outside of the leg. Through stimulation of the peroneal nerve, the Firefly increases the blood flow to the lower leg, which allows the wearer to recover from strenuous training faster, prevent injuries, and improve circulation.

dermaPACE Shockwave Wound Therapy
For patients who suffer from acute and chronic wounds, a novel device has been developed – the dermaPACE System. The mechanism of action is based on shockwave technology which has been used for nearly 30 years in orthopedic treatments and lithotripsy procedures (destruction of kidney stones). These early devices also provided evidence that there was an effect on wound healing. Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression (PACE ) Technology was developed based on this evidence, and the dermaPACE System is the first to utilize PACE specific proprietary protocols for wound treatment.
The dermaPACE System is CE Marked for the application of pulsed acoustic waves on acute and chronic defects of the skin and subcutaneous soft tissues, e.g.
- Post-operative wound healing defects
- Post-traumatic wounds
- Deep-partial thickness burns
- Decubitus ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Arterial ulcers
- Venous Leg ulcers
Currently, Accelerated’s clinic is the only site trialing this innovative device in Western Canada. This device may be used, with a physician prescription, within our Wound Care Program.
