    This clinical trial was just registered:
    ULCERS - Electrical Stimulation in Diabetic Foot Ulceration
    The device is this: http://www.gekodevices.com
    The proposed mechanism is similar to the Circulation Booster ... at least Geko are doing the right thing and registering a clinical trial.

    I still think going for a walk around the block will also activate those muscles and do more for the circulation as the "static" muscles stimulation does not improve arterial supply and can only facilitate venous return and probably help oedema... will wait for more evidence
