Recover faster, train harder
firefly is a revolutionary recovery device used by professional athletes, Olympians, and weekend warriors. It helps your body to recover faster by increasing blood flow throughout your entire body. firefly is small and portable, so you can take it with you wherever you go.
firefly stimulates blood flow
firefly sends small electrical pulses to stimulate your peroneal nerve (in your leg) creating a slight foot "flutter" which increases blood flow by 400%.
More blood & oxygen
Increased blood flow means your muscles get more oxygen and nutrients. This helps your body to recover from exercise faster and reduces soreness.
How to use firefly
firefly is easy to use and portable so you can improve recovery while keeping up with your active lifestyle.
firefly is so simple you can learn to use it in minutes.
Locate the fibular head
firefly is easiest to place if you are seated and your legs are bent.
How do I locate the fibular head?
To find the fibular head, start at your outer ankle bone and follow the side of your leg up toward your knee until you reach the fibular head (or bony spot), which is just below the knee on the outside of the leg.
Why is the fibular head important?
Locating the fibular head is important in order to stimulate the peroneal nerve, which is located near here. Stimulating the nerve will cause your feet to twitch (the "firefly flutter") causing increased blood flow and circulation to enhance recovery.
Prep the firefly
Carefully peel off the plastic backing and save it to store the device. Take care not to get any debris on the gel as it helps to ensure conductivity and adhesion.
Place the device
Ensure the application area is clean and dry. Place the device so that the raised indicator line (marked with arrows) is positioned at the center of the fibular head.
Confirm the position is correct
The circular head of the device should be positioned towards the front of the leg - with the tail of the device wrapped around to the back of the calf, just below the crease of the knee.
Turn the device ON/OFF
How to turn the device ON
Quickly press the (+) button to turn on.
How to Increase and Decrease levels
There are 7 levels and the light will blink to indicate the level (2 flashes = level 2). You may need to increase the level so that your feet will twitch.
Slowly raise the intensity by pressing the (+) button or decrease the intensity by pressing the (-) button. Find a level that is comfortable while also providing a slight "flutter" of your feet.
How to turn the device OFF
After using the firefly, press the (-) button and hold for 3-seconds to power OFF. After you remove the device, replace the plastic backing for storage.
Use the firefly knee strap to secure the device (optional)
firefly™ works best when used with knee straps. Place the knee strap over the device and gently secure in place.
