Frequently Asked Questions

How does Firefly work?

Firefly uses small electrical pulses to stimulate the peroneal nerve (a nerve in your leg). This increases full-body blood flow. That means more fresh blood and oxygen to reduce lactic acid and soreness, eliminate toxins, and keep muscles flexible.

When and how long should I wear the Firefly devices?

Recommended usage will optimize recovery so you can train harder and perform better. Firefly Recovery is used for warm up (30-60 minutes) post workout recovery (1-4 hours) and travel (duration of travel).

Should I use Firefly during training or working out?

No, it is not recommended to use Firefly during training or a workout. However, as Firefly is a portable device, it can be used when walking, stretching or on-the-go.

Can I use Firefly for upper body recovery?

Absolutely. Since Firefly increases blood flow throughout your entire body, it always functions as a full-body recovery device.

Why should I get a Starter Pack?

The Starter Packs have everything you need to get the full Firefly experience - they also comes at a discounted price.

The Start Pack includes 4 total Firefly devices, and two knee straps.

How many Firefly devices do I need?

If you're new to Firefly, we reccomend getting the Starter Pack, which contains 2 pairs of Firefly devices. This gives you enough time to get the full recovery experience.

If you're restocking, you can save money by buying in bulk or getting a subscription.

Do I need the knee strap?

We reccomend getting the Knee Straps (included in the Starter Pack).

The Knee Strap keeps Firefly securely in place whether you are resting or in motion. Additionally, as the gel-based backing on Firefly devices may become less adhesive after multiple uses, the knee strap will help to ensure proper stimulation from the device.

How do I use Firefly?

Recommended usage will optimize recovery so you can train harder and perform better.

Firefly Recovery is used for warm up (30-60 minutes), post workout recovery (2-4 hours), and travel (duration of travel).

Simply apply Firefly to the correct location on your peroneal nerve and turn the device on.

For full instructions click here.

How long does Firefly last?

When used as recommended, the Firefly device has a 30 hour battery life. The number of uses will depend on the length of each recovery session (average session is 1-4 hours). Afterwards, the battery is not rechargeable, it can be removed and recycled like any household battery.

Is the Firefly device painful to use?

The Firefly device should not be painful. You will feel muscles in the lower leg contract every second, which causes your foot to twitch (Firefly flutter). It may take a few moments to adjust to the sensation, but the movement is critical to increasing blood flow and recovery. if the sensation is too strong, decrease the level.

How does Firefly differ from muscle stim?

The Firefly is a modified NMES that stimulates a nerve vs. a muscle, it is not a muscle stim or TENS unit. Stimulating the peroneal nerve causes muscles to contract and to increase blood flow. Stimulating a muscle (with traditional NMES) for extended periods of time can cause muscle fatigue. The Firefly safely avoids muscle fatigue that can be caused by TENS.

Who should not use the Firefly device?

Individuals with pacemakers and recently diagnosed DVT should not use the Firefly. See the instructions that accompany the device for a full list of contraindications, warnings and precautions. Please see our technical specifications.

Real science. Real proof.

Backed by clinical studies, Firefly's technology is proven to speed up recovery effectively.

Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport

"The use of NMES aids the physiological and Psychological measures of recovery that can lead to significant increases in physical performance 24hr post-strenuous exercise"

Microvascular Research

"The NMES device at VMA state increased microcirculation by more than a factor of 3 in contrast to the
IPC device."

School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, Loughborough University

"The use of a novel NMES technique immediately following each training session during 4 weeks of HIIT does not have a detrimental effect on the adaptive response."

    Best recovery device

    I’ve been using the firefly for a little over 5 months and it has really changed the way I recover. Between heavy lifting and constant throwing my body have been very reciprocating the effects of the device to get through my day to day. Being on the go as I am most of the outdoor season. It allows me to sneak recovery in on my busy schedule and I feel a lot better heading into practice each day. I use my firefly each evening after practice for 2 hours to maximize recovery and for travel it is honestly a life saver.
